Continuous Integration Special Interest Group

Goal

The goal of the SIG is to bring together CI enthusiasts interested in developing tools, best practices, standards, and workflows to implement Continuous Integration at a larger scale.

While CI is well-known and used by many software projects, it is usually applied at an individual component level. Scaling it up is a challenge from both technical and organizational points of view. Here in Fedora, we have an opportunity to explore and develop the CI/CD topic beyond simple pull-request testing.

Topics

  • CI for Fedora
  • Containerized CI
  • CI on bare-metal
  • Gating at scale
  • Packaging and CI
  • CI and Upstream
  • CI engines, Artifact storages, Test result aggregators, Test analytics systems

Benefit to Fedora

CI is rarely associated with packaged Linux distributions even though it is nowadays used in most of them. We’d like to change this perception, to show that packaging and CI can and should be used together.

We also would like to establish Fedora as a perfect CI platform. Virtualization, containerization and many other tools available in Fedora provide a good foundation to build flexible, open and modern CI solutions and CI architectures on top of it. Let's make use of them.
