For a some time now, automated tests have been running against Fedora package builds thanks to the AutoQA post-koji-build watcher. The current tests are by no means exhaustive, but they do provide some level of automated feedback for those interested in a quick sanity check of their package builds. As a proof-of-concept, and before the spiffy results database is online, all test results are sent to the autoqa-results mailing list.
A few weeks back, Seth Vidal proposed several changes to allow package maintainers to sign-up for test results by mail. We all get a lot of email as it is, so this certainly isn’t the long-term option. However, it is an option for package maintainers who want test results emailed directly to them for review.
- Using your FAS credentials, login to fedorapeople.org (for assistance, see access instructions)
- Sign-up by running the command autoqa-optin with appropriate options. For example, to enable test emails for pykickstart for all rawhide and Fedora 14 builds, you would run:
# autoqa-optin pykickstart devel F-14 Opted into autoqa results for pykickstart of devel release Opted into autoqa results for pykickstart of F-14 release
To query which releases are configured for test result notification, you can run the autoqa-optin script with just a package name. For example:
# autoqa-optin yum yum opted in for releases: devel F-12 F-13 EL-6 F-11 F-14 Available Releases to be opted into: EL-4 EL-5 Enjoy!
