    OpenStack Community Newsletter — June 8

    Highlights of the week

the day and down to 42, a completion rate of 82%. In the mean time we

      Zuul: a Pipelining Trunk Gating System <http://amo-probos.org/post/14>

The OpenStack Infra team has released a new tool to improve the trunk
gating system. Zuul is a program that performs speculative execution of
tests.  By constructing a virtual queue of changes based on the order of
their approval, it runs jobs in parallel assuming they will all be
successful.  If any of them fail, then any jobs that were run based on
the assumption they succeeded are re-run without the problematic changes
included.  This means that in the best case, as many changes can be
tested and merged in parallel as computing resources will allow for
testing.  And of course, with cloud computing, that isn’t much of a hurdle.
