TL;DR: Live RDO cloud will be available for testing on upcoming test day. http://rdoproject.org/testday/queens/milestone2/ for more info.

Continous Integration jobs can generate a lot of data and it can take a lot of time to figure out what went wrong when a job fails. This article demonstrates new strategies to assist with failure investigations and to reduce the need to crawl boring log files. First, I will introduce the challenge of anomaly detection in CI logs. Second,… Read more →
You need to be aware of recent changes to our mailing lists What Happened, and Why? Since the start of the project we have had one mailing list for both users and developers of the RDO project. Over time, we felt that user questions have been drowned out by the more technical developer-oriented discussion, leaving users/operators out of the conversation…. Read more →
