Re: debci questions

Hi Thierry,

Terceiro is better at this, but I expect him to be busy with Debconf.

In our setup, yes.

Per worker you mean? I think 1 is enough. I think you're seeing two in
our configuration because that is how AWS works. The arm64 farm I am
trying to get working only uses one IIAC.

Our workers generate one lxc container per suite that is supported. In
our case each worker can run tests for all the supported suites.
debci-generate-index runs on the master. I haven't checked what it would
be doing with the debci_suite variable (as it doesn't make sense to me
there, but maybe I am missing something).

I'm pretty sure the suite is part of it yes. I can't comment on the
earlier remarks.

No, just one master to rule them all.

Although I can't answer all your questions, I hope it helps. Don't
hesitate to continue asking.
