#22 Update of Kernel test app
Opened 8 months ago by mobrien. Modified 3 months ago

New initiative: Kernel test update

What is this initiative about?

There is a kernel test app which helps the kernel maintainers get an idea of which kernels are more tested than others etc.

It works by people running a test suite/script on their booted linux box which then makes a test results file.
They upload this file to the app and then they can get badges for uploading, etc...

Currently this is running on a vm, it should move to openshift, switch to fedora-messaging and do anything else kernel maintainers need changed/fixed.

There was a re-write done, but it wasn't fully what they wanted. perhaps that could be modified.

Infra ticket for Reference: https://pagure.io/fedora-infrastructure/issue/10498

Why this initiative?

This will help the Kernel team get more feedback which can in turn be used to improve the Kernel for Fedora

Definition of success

Needs to be discussed with jforbes


Do this initiative have any dependencies?
Not that I am aware of

Skills needed?
Python, Openshift, Fedora messaging

Person who must or should be involved?

Other work that should be completed prior to this initiative?



To give a bit more insight, this app is used with every kernel build/update pushed and as a part of test week. The existing functionality is exactly what we need, I don't think it needs much change in functionality, but it does need to move to the new fedora messaging as the badge integration is no longer working. The move to openshift is fine with me, this is not a high performance app.

This has been on my to-do list for some time, though I do not know when I may have cycles to get to it, and I would have to brush up on fedora-messaging and such as well.
