Weekly status for the week of the 13th of February to the 19th of February 2018.

Introduction

This past week we’ve been focusing on a number of open pull requests, getting closer to merging improvements to our storage volume handling, unix char/block devices handling and the massive clustering branch that’s been cooking for a while.

We’re hoping to see most of those land at some point this coming week.

On the LXC side of things, the focus was on bugfixes and cleanups as well as preparing for the removal of the python3 and lua bindings from the main repository. We’re also making good progress on distrobuilder and hope to start moving some of our images to using it as the build tool very soon.

On the snap front, we’ve now added automatic testing for Ubuntu 17.10, Fedora 27 and Centos 7, all of which are now passing for all tracks and channels.

We’ve also been doing some work on our CI infrastructure, automating a large portion of it to limit the amount of manual interactions we have with Jenkins.
