MariaDB developers use a continuous integration system called Buildbot, which is used to run an extensive test suite on every commit. Buildbot helps us make sure there are no regressions and that the code quality keeps improving constantly.
Our CI system is fully public and you can see the builds being run here.
If you (or your company) have spare machine resources you would be willing to donate, feel free to contact the Foundation and let us know what you have!
To start a Buildbot sponsorship:
- Contact “foundation ‘at’ mariadb (dot) org” and tell us what kind of machine you’d be willing to donate (VPS/Dedicated, Processor, CPU, RAM, Storage…)
- We will let you know if we can take advantage of the offer.
- Send us the details on how to get access to the machine.
- If you want to, send us your logo. We are more than happy to show our appreciation by adding your logo/link to our Buildbot sponsors -page.
