Re: Using Salsa-CI as pre-upload QA for Bullseye and Buster uploads: Lintian and Piuparts


Re-trying the Salsa CI again with the simple libarchive/buster package (after getting frustrated with mailman/stretch errors a few months ago), I note that:

- the piuparts job was flacky and needed a restart

- the test-crossbuild-arm64 doesn't seem compatible with buster (using the new 'apt-get satisfy' command, for reasons I can't debug because of a redacted "collapsed multi-line command" even in the raw log; maybe it could written in a buster-compatible way, or otherwise just dropped for buster because it's confusing.

My $0.02 :)

I was wondering how common is it for DDs to use Salsa-CI while doing
quality assurance prior to Bullseye and Buster uploads?

I personally tend to run initial builds and dep-8 tests locally, because
when they fail, I have to re-run them manually to properly debug and fix the
failures anyway.
(not to mention additional manual tests)

Same for me.

Also I do my LTS (security) work in a VM without access to my Debian
credentials (gpg, ssh) so I can e.g. run various vulnerability PoCs and
exploits with a reasonable peace of mind; which makes it inconvenient to
push to Salsa.

I have custom(tools to share clipboard from host etc) live image
that I run on QEMU (via libvirt commands) for testing PoCs, exploits
and final build.
