Build and Test Standards

The oVirt project defined a set of standards that allow a source project to specify how it should be built, tested and released in a generic manner that is independent from the programming languages and tools that we used to develop the source project.

These standards are used to create generic build and test tools such as mock_runner that can work in a consistent manner for any oVirt project.

The oVirt CI system uses these standards in order to run build, test and release processes for projects in an automated manner. This is why these standards are also known as “Standard-CI” or “STDCI”.

For more information about the oVirt build and test standards, and the tools that use them, see the Build and Test Standards specification document.
