Remember that you are writing this how to for interested testers to use to check out your feature - documenting what you do for testing is OK, but it's much better to document what *I* can do to test your feature.

A good "how to test" should answer these four questions:

0. What special hardware / data / etc. is needed (if any)?

1. How do I prepare my system to test this feature? What packages

need to be installed, config files edited, etc.?

2. What specific actions do I perform to check that the feature is

working like it's supposed to?

3. What are the expected results of those actions?

First-Class Cloud Images

Summary

Cloud images for EC2 and for generic use (download and use in any cloud environment, like OpenStack, CloudStack, or Eucalyptus) will be produced as part of the Alpha, Beta, and Final compose process, and distributed on the mirror network. We'll also have automatic nightly builds of Rawhide and of the development version.

Owner

  • Email: mattdm at fedoraproject dot org

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 19
  • Last updated: January 19, 2013
  • Percentage of completion: 0%

Detailed Description

  • Koji updated to support image creation under visualization using Factory/Oz
  • Scratch images built weekly
  • "Blessed" built for Alpha, Beta, and Final

Benefit to Fedora

  • Cloud images more easily available to users
  • Cloud images available for better testing
  • Constant building of images provides better platform for testing in general

Scope

Updates to Koji are a fairly major infrastructure change. We'll need bare-metal builders (or nested virt). ImageFactory/Oz will grow the ability to take kickstarts in addition to xml templates. Creating LiveCDs with the same system will also require some changes to ImageFactory/Oz.

Release engineering will produce images weekly (in an automated way).

Will also need procedure for producing, testing, and blessing the official images for test and final releases.

How To Test

  • Do the images exist?
  • Do they boot in
    • OpenStack?
    • Eucalyptus?
