Randy Barlow: Bodhi using CentOS CI

The CentOS project recently offered to host Bodhi’s Jenkins jobs for
Fedora. Bodhi had previously been using the
Fedora Infrastructure Jenkins instance, but there were a
few drawbacks to that system:

  • It didn’t have the GitHub pull request plugin, so it was only capable of reporting test failures
    after a merge has happened instead of before. (Note: it is able to test Pagure pull requests, but
    Bodhi isn’t migrated to Pagure yet.)
  • It reused the system that ran the tests, rather than provisioning a fresh system for each test
    build. Due to this, previous tests could affect the environment for future tests.
  • The tests didn’t have root access on the test runner, which meant we had to request admin
    assistance to install new dependencies.
  • The Jenkins job had to be edited in Jenkins, rather than in Bodhi’s source control.

Now that Bodhi is on CentOS CI, the issues described above
are all addressed:

  • Bodhi’s pull requests are now tested on GitHub.
  • Each pull request gets a fresh VM to run the tests on, so they all have a common starting point.
  • The test script can use
  • CentOS CI uses Jenkins Job Builder,
    which allows Bodhi to store its
    Jenkins jobs in
    its own repo.

Many thanks to Brian Stinson and the CentOS project for setting this up and maintaining the system
for Bodhi!
