Open Questions

  • where do we compile Packages (Jenkins Server)
  • where and how do we sign Packages (Jenkins Server)
  • should we use a new GPG Key or is there an existing one

decided at the Server Team Sprint November 2013

  • Origin/Label (=> TYPO3 Server Admin Team)
  • Codename: wheezy
  • Architecture: amd64, noarch
  • Components: typo3infrastructure (not typo3 to avoid confusion - this is not a Repository for TYPO3 Packages but a Repository for the TYPO3 Server Team)

Hi Andri,

yes, I'd like to see the whole pipeline implemented in jenkins. Can we have a job template that we use as starting point for setting up the particular package jobs that we have? I'm not a Jenkins expert (at all..).

There's no GPG key, yet.

Anything else unanswered?

Thanks for your help!

Another requirement that I would see is to add existing @.deb@s from external sources (that are either not in any repo (like chef) or could be just under our control (could imagine that for nginx or varnish repos)).

Would we have one job per package (chef-client, chef-server, nginx) or would it be one job, where we just pass the URL or upload the .deb?

Everything is up & running on my own internal Jenkins Server. Adding existing Packages is very easy, just skip the Compiling stuff but only fetch the Package from somewhere and add it to the Repository. I'm not sure about the GPG Key on the Jenkins Server for Security Reasons. AFAIK there are many other Projekts on this Server (every TYPO3 Extension?) who could access this Key then. The same would apply to the SSH Key which is required to upload those Packages to the Package Server.

Thanks Andri, cool news! There is no way that we separate the jobs from each other?

At least on our internal Server everything is executed as "jenkins" User. Maybe there are some other solutions but i've never seen something like that, however im not a jenkins expert and never thought about this before.
