Policy Changes


  • Two machines (phoebe and selene) were purchased by the ASF for use by the Geronimo project for Geronimo TCK testing. These machines were used to perform the TCK certification of the Geronimo 2.1.3 release. They've also been used to uncover problems in our current 2.2 codebase.
  • Testing to date has been driven manually. However, community has settled on the framework to be used in driving automated testing. Expect to see this realized in the near future.
  • Interest in monitoring the utilization of these two machines was expressed. We plan on installing appropriate software to start this monitoring. The data will be made available, as appropriate. We will include a summary of usage statistics in our quarterly reports.
