Details of the Talk

tb3 is a new implementation for tinderbox coordination. A blog entry already explained the basic idea.

tb3 can:

  • coordinate multiple tinderboxes working on the same build scenario or branch
  • coordinate one tinderbox working on multiple build scenarios or multiple branches
  • make tinderboxes bisect without loosing sight of the head of a branch
  • especially help tests and builds that are painfully slow

It should also enable:

  • better bibisect repo generation
  • covers the scope of simple "does it build"-tinderboxing and unittesting up to "blackbox" integration and system testing (we need your tests now!)
  • in the long run, should be integrated with all our communication channels (IRC, mailing list, RSS feeds etc. -- each with messages appropriate for that medium)
