Now KernelCI has a dedicated SysAdmin!
Recently, we posted about the Request For Proposals to undertake SysAdmin tasks for KernelCI.org. That process is now complete, and we are delighted to announce that the KernelCI advisory board hired Vince Hillier from Revenni Inc to conduct the work.
Vince will work together with the Technical Steering Committee (TSC) to maintain and improve the current project infrastructure. As KernelCI.org scales with more kernels being built and more tests being run, we definitely need help to keep our systems stable and up to date.
The KernelCI project relies on a number of web services which need constant maintenance. These include databases, automation tools and web dashboards for several instances. Some are hosted on dedicated virtual machines (VMs), others in the cloud.
