Dan[edit]

  • What I planned vs did last week
    • Met with folks about various things I'm involved in (beta, pipelinelib, mw dep management, etc.)
    • Worked on the Argo PoC. So far:
      • Gerrit propagates events on a per project basis (according to webhooks.config in refs/meta/config branch)
      • Argo Events webhooks gateway handles events, passing them on to a "sensor" which trigger Workflow script
      • A limitation was discovered in trigger configuration which made getting Workflow configuration from repo difficult
      • Had a great interaction with upstream about the limitation: filed issue with feature request, they said "sounds useful. let's do it", implemented said feature and submitted a PR, they said LGTM and merged it. Wee!
  • What I plan to do this week
    • Continue to work on Argo PoC
      • Source Workflow configuration from project repo
      • Get artifacts stored in Minio
      • Report status and Argo UI link to Gerrit PS
  • What I'm blocked on
    • Was blocked on the Argo Events limitation but no more! (the improvement still needs to be released, however)
  • Other?
