Ticket #1554 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Hosting solution for Test Images
|Reported by:||poelstra||Owned by:||mmcgrath|
I volunteered after the meeting to file this ticket.
One long standing deficiency in our testing process has been the inability to make GA RC testing images and unreleased Alpha and Beta testing images readily and generally available for community testing. Historically these images have been made available to and tested by @redhat.com people only. This contradicts the rest of our processes and philosophy as a project where everyone, regardless of employer can participate.
During Fedora 10 and 11 some test images were been made available on a public facing web server used by Release Engineering. There was no documented policy about who was allowed to access this content and what level of public disclosure there should be around its availability. As a result some people (including me) were (unfairly) publicly accused of "leaking" this information.
Release Engineering contends that it is not possible to make this content publicly available without putting an undue burden on their infrastructure. Endless discussion has taken place at IRC meetings and mailing lists about how this problem without finding a better way forward.
I would like to officially bring this issue to the Infrastructure Team, who I understand to be ultimately responsible for providing services like this (delivering content in the fastest way possible), to see if there is in fact a creative, viable solution to this problem that they can suggest and implement.
Thank you for your consideration,
