=========================================
CI Status
=========================================

-----------------------------------------
General
-----------------------------------------

* BUG-210 (Patches with dependency fails to apply): Syntax is now official
in the documentation, should be possible to update the script to look for /
parse this information.
   * UNH-IOL will look into implementing this, either in git-pw or as a
wrapper to that.
* BUG-511 (Add check if performance tests are needed): This can also be
implemented to avoid running unnecessary testing.
   * UNH-IOL will look into implementing this.

-----------------------------------------
Travis CI / OBS
-----------------------------------------

* No updates

-----------------------------------------
Intel Lab
-----------------------------------------

* No issues, running for 20.11 release.
* Need to extend the coverage if possible to add more devices / drivers.
This would have caught a recent failure within the testpmd component, if
additional drivers are being checked.  Zhaoyan will discuss internally and
come back with a proposed plan.
* Intel is planning to add test cases to the UNH-IOL hosted hardware for
crypto and virt-io.  Lincoln to work with Zhaoyan on this plan and report
back to the group.

-----------------------------------------
UNH-IOL Community Lab
-----------------------------------------

* Seeing some apply errors as the branches change rapidly with the 20.11
release prep.  We’ve been watching and manually selecting the branch where
possible for these cases.
* Working on reliability with DPDK unit testing script
   * https://bugs.dpdk.org/show_bug.cgi?id=566
* Making changes to meson compile to reduce amount of false failures
reported on the dashboard
* Investigating issue with patch sets not being picked up by the server
* ARM hardware still being set up with DTS/TREX
* Working on migrating rte_flow functional test into production systems
* Reporting format
   * Desire to have the last N lines of the console log included in the
email report, this will make it easier to debug quickly.  We’ll file a bug
on this item to track this.  Plan to launch this after the 20.11 release is
completed. (See BUG-569).

=========================================
Test Development
=========================================

* rte_flow was completed and merged into the DTS main branch.
* Future Work
* DTS Feedback - Some initial (rough draft) user and developer feedback has
been captured here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1c5S0_mZzFvzZfYkqyORLT2-qNvUb-fBdjA6DGusy4yM/edit
 Tech board is looking into DTS as a priority for 2021, and this feedback
is extremely valuable to that process.  Please contribute! A lot of the
devs are very busy with the 20.11 release, so we’ll keep reminding this
over the next few meetings, so we don’t forget.

=========================================
Any other business
=========================================

* Next Meeting: November 19, 2020
