Hi all! Our BuildBot at https://build.reactos.org is finally going to be upgraded from the ancient version 0.8.14 to the latest 2.3.1 release this Tuesday evening (CEST).
We have postponed this for a very long time due to the fundamental UI changes in newer versions. The UI has been rewritten from scratch and its Waterfall View has been simplified. I used to be a strong opponent of this change. However, in one of the last meetings, it turned out that the current Waterfall View isn't that popular among our developers anyway. You can expect the new BuildBot to look like this: https://lidell.nu/xemacs-buildbot/ BuildBot also doesn't provide a direct migration path from the old to the new version. This means that previous build and log information will be gone after the upgrade. I used to consider this a blocker as well, but current BuildBot already purges old build/log information after some time and apparently it hasn't been missed. We still have all important information in Testman. I will make sure however that build numbers in the new version continue where they ended in the old version. On the plus side, this upgrade brings integrations with GitHub and Mattermost as well as proper Unicode support. Using an up-to-date BuildBot version also allows us to actually enhance it. In fact, this upgrade is a prerequisite for the Developer Web Interface our GSoC student Ayush Sinha is currently working on. Regarding Buildslaves (now called "workers"), the new BuildBot is still compatible with 0.8.x clients, so these don't need an upgrade right away. We just need a small change on workers submitting test results. Kudos go to Victor Perevertkin, who has already begun evaluating the new BuildBot version a long time ago and provided me with an updated master.cfg file, along with other help! I'm glad that the number of people maintaining our BuildBot setup is growing! :) Cheers, Colin
