OK, I have some ideas but I want to make sure that they are
for AutoQA before I go much farther with them. I'll make a proposal
before I go too far, though.
Do we have any requirements on where AutoQA will run? Specifically, I
wondering about older versions of Fedora or any version of RHEL. I
think that all of the tools I'm thinking of are currently in any
repositories and I don't want to head down that path if it is already
I realize that I would have to package any new tools, have them
and at least in rawhide before having a chance of getting anything in
Some of the tools are surely in the repos (mkrizek used nose, it's
in Fedora), some of them might not. I believe our requirement is that
we want to have AutoQA running on RHEL 5+ and supported Fedora's (13+).
Because of RHEL 5.4, we currently limit our server code to Python 2.4
IIRC. But limitation could be soon lifted after we upgrade our production
server to RHEL 6.
But this is really a question for James, let's wait for his reply. It
would be surely best to use packaged tools. If the tool is not packaged
and we need, we should make sure it's possible to have it packaged sooner
or later (we will need to have everything in Fedora in the end).
As for supported RHEL releases (5 and 6 or just 6), I believe James have
some plans for this.
