This documents the obsolete buildbot setup that was never lead to an actually useful state.

Automated builds

A buildbot instance automatically builds the experimental, devel, testing and stable branches. No build result is currently published due to bandwidth constrains, to there is no way for developers or users to download the results yet.


Our buildbot's instance runs inside a KVM guest managed by libvirt.

What was left to do

  1. Have the build failure notification sent to someone who wants to work on this.
  2. Custom notifications when a build fails: the one currently sent lacks some useful information.
  3. Request a mailing list where buildbot would send its build failure reports.
  4. Move to a "build in a throw-away VM" approach, so that a given build cannot taint future ones.
  5. Build all feature/* and bugfix/* branches.
