Call for help: archive rebuilds
I'm unlikely to be able to do much archive rebuild work in the coming year, so
I would welcome help on that front.
Here is the "job" description:
- maintain scripts to organize archive rebuilds, parse logs and file bugs
Required skills: basic Ruby knowledge (or willingness to learn)
scripts are in
- do the archive rebuilds themselves on Amazon Web Services
Required skills: basic AWS knowledge (or willingness to learn)
- process results and file bugs (there are scripts that allow to automate
most of the process).
Required skills: good understanding of FTBFS bugs (common causes for
failure, etc), and of the BTS
- answer to questions from maintainers
Overall, one important "skill" is the ability to dedicate time to this task on
a regular basis (on average, approx. 3 hours every 3 weeks).
The task covers "normal" archive rebuilds (rebuilding all packages, including
source and arch:all, from source), but also custom rebuilds (new
GCC/python/eglibc/... releases, clang), and possibly QA-specific targets
(double-builds, non-minimal chroots, etc.)
It is not required to be a DD or DM.
