Continuous Integration for an open source Distro Eco system


Open Source distros today build packages using a continuous build system. However, there is no upstream/downstream package building, and even elementary testing is left to testers.

For the Belenix project, we are using a continuous integration model to build packages, and indeed, the entire distro.

In this talk, we cover how our lessons can be taken an applied to other distros, in-house custom distro projects, and JeOS projects. The talk will also cover how we could arrive at an eco-system of continuous integration and testing of open source packages, where people all over the world collaborate to make better software and identify integration issues earlier.

Finally, we'll also showcase how easy we've made it for developers to contribute and track their work's status (upstream and downstream).
