This seems to be a good point to announce some things.
I gave instructions here for how to fork the official Samba Team mirror
When you then push back to a branch in that fork, many of the tests run
in shared runners provided by GitLab.com. This is a similar but not
matching set to those run in Travis-CI:
The missing tests (autobuild targets) compared to sn-devel on the two
GitHub shared runners
Anybody at all can use this simply by creating an account (as below)
and forking Samba's primary mirror:
However there is GOOD NEWS!
I've set up a new shared repo, entitled "Upstream Samba Development".
There I've set up the remaining tests, so if you push a branch there
the FULL set of tests are run, using 'private runners' on Rackspace to
fill in the gaps.
Members of the samba-team organisation on gitlab.com already have
access, but because this isn't our main repository (only the master and
release branches are protected and force-reset), we can also allow
others from our broader community to join.
Between these options we have a good set of options to have gitlab be
both a major development platform for Samba Team members while also
providing great service and rapid feedback for external contributors.
Status on pipelines (CI) run in this repo is summarised here:
I'll talk about this more during my talk at SambaXP.
Finally, to join:
https://gitlab.com -> Sign in/register (top right-hand corner)
Use either github/google/etc credentials or create an account.
Once in, click the profile icon in the top-right-hand corner to access
Click the pen to edit it. Click SSH keys or go to
Add your SSH key.
To set up two-factor authentication go to:
Finally, tell me your username and I can add you to the samba-team
group or the samba-team/devel/samba repo as appropriate.
You can pull and push from the collaborative development repo using
this git URL:
git at gitlab.com:samba-team/devel/samba.git
git remote add gitlab.com-samba-devel git at gitlab.com:samba-team/devel/samba.git
git fetch gitlab.com-samba-devel
Please play nice and use branch-names starting with your username.
