Re: pqm testfix-only mode


Hi Evan. Our testfix machinery is very much a Rube Goldberg machine and I do not recommend that you follow its implementation.

That said, if you need details, I am one of the people who can provide them.

The quick answer to your question is that pqm has acceptance rules that you can change out with a file. When a local long-running process notices that buildbot failed, it changes the pqm rules into a file that tells PQM to accept nothing except those commits with "[testfix]" in the message. That is testfix mode.

Hiya.  I'm trying to get some understanding of how the testfix-only
mode of pqm is implemented, so that I may write similar code for
tarmac.  It seems that this would live in the pqm branch itself, but
the only reference to testfix I can find in there is some code for
commit message formatting.

Would someone be so kind as to point me in the right direction?
