GSoC 2012: On-Demand Fedora Build Service
My involvement with the Fedora community continues to grow with the project On-Demand Fedora Build Service being accepted as part of Google Summer of Code 2012.
Here’s the abstract:
On-Demand build service seeks to build Live and installation images for developers, testers and consumers of Fedora Linux. During the testing of Fedora releases, test images are often useful as smoke tests before full TC/RC composes, as baselines for specific test days or for automated installation testing in AutoQA. The idea is to make an on-demand Web-based build service which users/developers can use to make custom Fedora based distributions so that command-line wrangling can be minimized.
More details is available here. I shall be blogging more about my progress here. Many thanks to my mentor Tim Flink for his support during the application.
Congratulations to all the other projects accepted as part of the Fedora project.
Thanks a lot for volunteering for this! It would be a huge help to QA efforts.
Do we have any infrastructure commitments for this? Because IIRC, the roadblock which made previous such projects not become as successful as planned was the lack of infrastructure to host them.
Hi Amit, congrats on getting accepted, my fellow fedora summer coder! I got accepted by fedora too. Your project looks like a cool idea, hope it works out well for you!
