I'm trying to weigh priorities of all the different things that

unclear on is what people would use beaker for if it was working
and publicly available.
If you're one of the folks who would use a publicly accessible
beaker instance for testing fedora, I'd appreciate some details on
what you'd plan to be doing with that instance.
I started replying before realising that since we already have
accounts, our usage isn't contingent on "publicly accessible". So the
only thing we'd be after is public *read-only* access to the results
pages (so we can link to them from Gerrit without folks getting odd
access denied errors), rather than needing general access for folks to
Specifically, I'm looking for:
What tests would you be looking to do?
Run the Beaker self-tests as CI against (F20?/CentOS 6?)
Run the Beaker self-tests against Fedora rawhide to provide advance
notice of any backwards compatibility breaks in our dependencies.
How often would the tests be run?
For Gerrit triggered CI runs, on the order of half a dozen runs a day
(occasionally more if we're iterating heavily on a patch).
For regression testing against rawhide - TBD. Hopefully Alexander or
Kamil can chime
Are there enough people available cycles with sufficient spare
cycles to handle running jobs and reading results?
Are the tests already open sourced?
Could you estimate when you'd need to have a working beaker
by in order to start running your tests for f21 (branch date of
2014-07-08, so sometime in July)?
As noted above, we can front run the timeline a bit, since we have
accounts already, even without FAS integration. That's probably worth
pursuing as a shakedown option before opening the instance up to
Getting Beaker itself into Fedora is also on our todo list.
