Description

Acceptance criteria

  • AC1: At least a part of openqa/scripts is open sourced or we have a clear statement in a project README file why we do not want to do this

Suggestions

  • Ask main stakeholders in this repo about their opinion, e.g. lnussel, coolo, qa-tools-team
  • Create github project e.g. on os-autoinst/scripts, as replacement for parts of it or all
  • Proper license (again, check with contributors)
  • Replace previous location with redirect notice
  • Ensure all references to old location - if changed - are updated

https://gitlab.suse.de/openqa/scripts/merge_requests/212:
Idea was to evaluate what part of the scripts we can share with the
community, which is tricky. Hence adding reasoning why it's a project on
our internal gitlab in the README.

#8 Updated by okurz almost 2 years ago

Well, I think we should not give up that easily :)

I suggest you reopen this and we can discuss next week

  • Status changed from Resolved to In Progress

ok, I read a bit from your MR to the README (only what I could figure out from notication emails without VPN) and sorry to say but it looks like you made it a bit too easy. Yes, the whole project as is can not simply be open sourced. Yes, direct descriptions of the internal infrastructure are tabu but that should not mean we can not separate that better to actually achieve this step. Compare the "fetchneedles" script we have in upstream openQA and the "fetchneedles-sles" script we have in gitlab. I guess we could do a similar route to success.

  • Status changed from In Progress to Feedback

AC is fulfilled, I've collected the feedback by asking people mentioned in the description. And we agreed that maintaining 2 repos would be painful. Let's discuss on Monday. I also don't see that neither as a priority, nor as a problem which will help us.
