Release Engineering

Project description:

During the first OPNFV release “Arno”, releng is the repository where activities related to automation of the toolchains was implemented. During Arno, this repository did not have an associated project and coordination. Leading into release 2, the Release Engineering project is proposed to establish structure around these activities.

The Release Engineering project proposes to undertake all automation, tooling and infrastructure related activities required by OPNFV projects to achieve E2E automation in order to make sure all repeating/day to day and release related activites are run in reliable fashion. Release Engineering project is a software development infrastructure project similar to OpenStack Infra.

Each of these activities require identification and installation of the necessary tools, creation of corresponding scripts and development and deployment of Jenkins jobs that will be realized by this project.
