Results of MEP19 meeting

Thanks to everyone who participated in the discussion today.

I didn't take great notes, but I thought I would synthesize the

discussion into a list of action items on the wiki here:

If I forgot something, please add.  My memory gets fuzzier in my old

age.

Interesting discovery as I work through Travis' S3 support.

You need to include the S3 authentication tokens in the .travis.yml file to upload files to S3, obviously. Travis provides a way to store these tokens encrypted so they aren't in clear text in the .travis.yml file. However (from the Travis docs):

Please note that secure env variables are not available for pull requests. This is done due to the security risk of exposing such information in submitted code. Everyone can submit a pull request and if an unencrypted variable is available there, it could be easily displayed.

Makes sense, and I doubt that there's a way around that. It becomes a pretty annoying limitation for our needs, though. It means we can't get the result images for a failed pull request test.

A colleague just pointed this in my direction:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/homebrew/brew-test-bot

It won't run your test suite, but it'll test the build process. Only for
Homebrew, though.
