Project Description

Discuss maintenance issues and priorities for Slicer and Extension nightly builds as NA-MIC itself winds down.

Objective

  • Determine how maintenance of the factory machines will be handled
    • Do we have enough machines? (mac, windows, linux cloud servers needed?)
    • How can the community help? (setting up and maintaing dashboard machines)
  • Are there other technologies or systems we should leverage, e.g. travis-ci
  • Address questions discussed in this slicer-devel email thread
  • Other ideas we should consider?

Approach, Plan

  • Have a breakout discussion and document results here

Progress

  • Reviewed travis-ci status
    • system looks like it works well for CTK on linux
    • questions of squeezing slicer build into 90 minute windows, but could be done with refactoring
  • Discussed possible alternative build systems
  • Some additional dedicated machines could be useful if we can afford to buy them, but would prefer cloud machines.
