Re: Should the OpenStack API re-use the EC2 credentials?


I'm curious what the point of having a line of trunks for a commit to bounce
down on its way to trunk would gain us other than having to manage a line of
trunks. What's wrong with status quo branch management (other than tests)?
What's wrong with having the commit sit in its LP topic branch, which is
every bit as publicly accessible as any branch in the line of trunks would
be? The test system (or anyone who wants to play with it) can just grab
trunk merge the topic branch and run however many levels or types of tests
we deem appropriate. Success = trunk. Fail = test fail status in the test
