Scaling to multiple architectures

Speaker: Holger Levsen

Currently only tests Debian amd64. In this BoF we want to discuss how to scale this to multiple architectures and possible how to rewrite the web UI so that it scales with both more architectures as well as with 10 times more suites than it was written for.

Basically if you are interested to help by writing a nice(!) webapp, you should attend this BoF. Or to put it differently: if you want to help Debian, but don’t know how, this could be your opportunity to contribute to a rather central QA tool in Debian!

Scaling piuparts to support multiple architectures could be done using two ways: the dumb and the smart way, where the latter uses a bit less hardware ressources but will require a bit of python coding. Join if you want to help here. (Also, we could start with the dumb way and later switch to the smart way…)
