Board at desk - Single dev. beta release: KernelCI + LAVAv2 on your machine to test kernels

Agustin Benito Bethencourt <agustin.benito@...>

Dear CIP friends,

The Civil Infrastructure Platform project[1], a Linux Foundation Initiative, is happy to announce the publication of a customised and easy to deploy instance of the KernelCI + LAVAv2 projects as a vagrant VM image/recipe, containing the tools and configurations used and developed by the kernelci project, the biggest collaborative testing effort.

This VM is configured so any developer can deploy it in her machine and test a specific kernel on a board physically connected to it.

Please visit the Download page[2] if you are interested in using kernelci on your own machine. To learn more about the current release please visit the feature page[3].

Goal of this effort[4] is designed as a "open collaborative service", mostly used by the Linux Kernel community. At CIP, we believe this effort we now publish under beta state will help:

a.- To create a first step towards "trusted testing" within CIP for every member and the CIP kernel maintainer.

b.- To extend and simplify the current use case satisfied by, focusing on those embedded developers that have direct access to boards, by reducing the deployment, configuration and maintenance costs.

c.- To severely increase the number of developers and organizations willing to participate in by providing a simple mechanism to evaluate the technologies involved and to test Linux kernels.

The final release date will depend on the feedback received. Check the roadmap[5] for further details. CIP is a community project so we welcome contributions[6] to this effort.
