Package Install Automation¶
This page documents the current state of the package automation. See "Package Install Testing":Package Install Testing for details on setting up the virtual machines used to automate the testing.
The automation makes heavy use of VM features. A vm snapshot is taken of each vm machine. After the test is complete (package install and tests run) the vm is reverted to it's previously fossology not installed state. This allows rapid turnaround of testing. If this method was not used, a template would have to be inflated into a new vm, the vm would have to be configured for dhcp then brought on-line.
