As part of greater Continuous Integration (CI) efforts at Linaro,
the Infrastructure Team is tasked to develop and maintain a jenkins based,
versatile service run in the cloud that will drive the build part of the
continuous integration loop for engineering components.
After an intense 11.09 cycle focused on developing a solution for doing
large scale kernel CI building and testing, we are pleased to announce that
the Linaro CI build service is now available for wider beta testing for L
If you are interested in trying out this service or if you have a kernel
tree/defconfig that you would like to be continuously built on Linaro CI and
tested in Linaro's LAVA lab, please get in touch with me and the
infrastructure team, to discuss your steps to get started.
Expect more updates and information from the Linaro CI front as we proceed.

2. Details and background on the CI build service and how to request a new
3. The list of the existing Kernel CI builds that are currently built and
daily basis can be found at
4. Daily tracking your Kernel CI build results is explained here
5. Daily tracking your Kernel CI runtime results is explained there
6. Future development ideas for the service
The 11.09 release is just a first step and more exciting and advanced
features are on their way. Linaro CI has already started showing results by
finding bugs during
our development/setup phase of Linaro CI build service.
Visit our backlog milestone  in launchpad to get an up to date overview
of ideas and
deliverables in our planning pipeline.
Here some samples of topics we discussed:
1. Extend the kernel CI effort by adopting further defconfigs and tracked
verification of the kernel builds on different kinds of boards in the
2. Develop and host a one stop place for kernel CI tracking on LAVA
where engineers can continuously monitor their components for build and
3. Add support for adhoc kernel builds. This will allow kernel tree
maintainers to try out
pull requests and local developments in LAVA using a simple one time
4. Improve CI support for downstream kernel maintainers (e.g. ubuntu,
The goal is to make continuous downstream merging and integration of
upstream repositories very easy and efficient.
The beginning of many milestones has just begin with a small step
and your feedback will be of immense value in achieving the future
