Thanks to the wonderful work of Ronald Bradford, a buildbot is now up and running for Drizzle and is accepting BuildSlaves. Not familiar with Buildbot? It’s a tool which allows continuous and automated building and testing of a project with a public web-based interface showing which platforms are building and testing cleanly, and which developer has messed up a build or test 😉
Adding one of your machines as a BuildSlave (a machine which performs the build and test) is quite easy, and Ronald has set up a few wiki pages describing the process:
We very much encourage folks who have access to larger or unusual platforms to become BuildSlaves so that the development team can verify builds and tests for a larger variety of platforms.
Thanks very much to Ronald for all the great work on this up to now and his company 42SQL for hosting the buildmaster!
