Yes, we have a plan to do that that we outlined at the infra/QA meetup this summer and described to this list in this email: http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2014-July/041057.html Particularly this part, but please read the whole message if you have not already, or have forgotten it: * For all non gold standard configurations, we'll dedicate a part of our infrastructure to running them in a continuous background loop, as well as making these configs available as experimental jobs. The idea here is that we'll actually be able to provide more configurations that are operating in a more traditional CI (post merge) context. People that are interested in keeping these bits functional can monitor those jobs and help with fixes when needed. The experimental jobs mean that if developers are concerned about the effect of a particular change on one of these configs, it's easy to request a pre-merge test run. In the near term we might imagine this would allow for things like ceph, mongodb, docker, and possibly very new libvirt to be validated in some way upstream. * Provide some kind of easy to view dashboards of these jobs, as well as a policy that if some job is failing for > some period of time, it's removed from the system. We want to provide whatever feedback we can to engaged parties, but people do need to realize that engagement is key. The biggest part of putting tests into OpenStack isn't landing the tests, but dealing with their failures. I'm glad to see people interested in this. If you're ready to contribute to it, please stop by #openstack-infra or join our next team meeting to discuss how you can help. -Jim  https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings/InfraTeamMeeting _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
