Re: Proposal to Change CATs Ownership

Mike Youngstrom <youngm@...>

I agree with Michael. I think the CATs and Smoke tests should be in their
own release(s).

Can you explain why CATs should live under CAPI?
CATs now represents acceptance test for all of the Cloud Foundry function
driven mainly via the CLI.
Tieing this to any one release seems a bit artificial.
CATs is about testing the aggregation of all the various releases not just

I am more surprised that it wasn't suggested to be its own release which
dictated the versions for all releases that had passed.

This solves several pain points we've experienced over the last few
months, mainly due to the strong coupling between CATs and the Cloud
Controller API.

Our plan is to submodule the CATs repo in to CAPI release, and bump CATs
on a successful run through the CAPI ci pipeline. At this point, CAPI
release will be bumped in cf-release develop, which other teams will
consume for their own testing purposes.

We hope to make these changes in the near future as we wrap up our release
extraction from cf-release. We'd like to know if any teams have any
concerns about this before we proceed, so do let us know as soon as
possible so we can address them.
