Second: currently we keep copies of several weeks' worth of daily Rawhide trees in the Koji build system. When a tree is deemed good (i.e. when it passes all the tests) someone from QA should file a ticket with rel-eng to create a "known-good" symlink for that rawhide tree. This link should be public and well-known. Someone suggested the name "chewtoy" for this known-good Rawhide.

Overview

provide small auto-test system with a web-based interface which can help to customize autoinstall testing.The test system should be small enough for personal use.

Problem Space

The purpose of auto test is to simplify testing,save time, improve efficiency.So the auto-test should help us to solve the following problems:

  • the system should be small enough for personal use
  • have a very simple interface for user to customize testing or configure testing
  • very easy interface for user to setup some services
  • test result is easy to check


=Proposed Solution

  • use the network install to finish install tests one by one.
  • provide web-based interface to customize testing.In the web page,user can specify the path of ISO,select which cases to run or not,edit(import) kickstart file or automaticly generate kickstart file after give some selected parameters (partition,packages,install method).
  • web-based interface help to setup some needed services due to some special cases. Modify,add or delete test cases,
  • Test result display page help to check the test result easily


Scope

  • QA Team members (i.e. testers) will need to do regular (daily) testing
  • rel-eng will need to move the symlink when requested

Active Ingredients

  • Define requirements for Good vs. Broken
  • Write test cases to check each requirement
  • Automate test cases wherever possible
  • Set up a system (webapp?) to allow testers to submit results for tests that can't be automated
  • Public website that shows results of daily rawhide testing
  • Set up a known-good rawhide ("chewtoy") link based on those test results
  • Publicize a link to the "chewtoy" known-good tree
  • Hosting for israwhidebroken.com - or a redirect.

Roadmap

Need to list requirements / solicit mockups for the webapp.
