Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Support Ubuntu Installs in the MPack
Date Fri, 15 Dec 2017 10:41:18 GMT
If we start adding direct support for systems other than CentOS (which I'm
in favor of), I suggest we make sure to very explicitly document what the
level of support, testing, etc. for everything is.

If we're not requiring everything to be tested against Ubuntu, we should
make sure to document exactly what the difference in expectation is along
with it being in some categorization that makes it obvious where it falls
(e.g. CentOS is primary support, Ubuntu is best effort, or whatever).

Also, it sounds like Nick is suggesting that we don't have devs test
against both CentOS and Ubuntu, but potentially that's only true for
non-Ubuntu PRs. If CentOS is the gold standard, I expect not only that
Ubuntu work, but that CentOS work as well.  This implies that Ubuntu
changes get tested against both (i.e. dev needs to be run up for both OSs).
