Resistance is Futile - Using zypper to "upgrade" CentOS/RHEL to openSUSE/SLES

a project by RBrownSUSE

zypper is magic

A number of experiments suggest that it may be feasible to run zypper from an openSUSE 'live' media against a 'foreign' RPM based OS installation (eg. CentOS) and then 'zypper dup' to openSUSE

Test openQA in openQA with openQA using openQA for openQA

a project by RBrownSUSE

Occasionally, new versions of openQA break things. How do you stop that? MORE TESTING! Testing openQA by using openQA to ensure the new versions don't break should be a good example of how openQA can test everything and anything, even itself.

TumbleSLE - Applying Tumbleweed Logic to the SLE codebase for more efficient testing & development

an invention by RBrownSUSE

Right now internal SLE development is still organised & structured around the concept of 'Milestones'. Schedules are defined, deadlines are set, and off we go making Alpha 1, 2, 3, Betas 1, 2, 3, RC's, and so on. Meanwhile, QA has evolved, and with openQA and other automated tooling we are increasingly testing SLE in a more agile, rolling model, testing every single build as soon as it's produced by OBS, and just paying extra attention to the Milestones with additional manual testing.

openQA Package Testing

a project by RBrownSUSE

openQA has a well earned reputation as a 'full system' testing tool, able to test a system end-to-end from the operating system to it's applications on a number of different platforms and architectures, including VM's & Bare Metal. But one area of weakness is it's usefulness as a testing tool for developers or packagers. openQA can easily test a package once it's INSIDE a distribution, but how do you test that package BEFORE submitting it to the distribution?

I currently have a lot of personal infrastructure that is in need of some tender loving care and transactionalisation https://rootco.de is running on a Leap 42.3 Hetzner box. I'd like to replace this with something transactional (either Kubic, Leap 15 or Tumbleweed transactional server)

Learning how to properly build Distros in home: projects

a project by RBrownSUSE

openSUSE now has a lot of black magic around building distributions for :Factory and :Leap This includes all of the 000* packages and opensuse-release-tools doing very useful stuff like pkglistgen automatically managing the package lists for .kiwi files so release managers don't need to manually update which packages are going on which media
