Dive into Zuul – Gated commit system

Zuul is software developed by the OpenStack community. It was developed as an efficient gated commit system, allowing projects to merge patches only after they pass a series of tests. It reduces the probability of breaking the master branch, for instance when unit tests or functional tests no longer pass on the tip of master. Fabien Boucher explains how Zuul works and clarifies some concepts through simple examples.

OpenStack celebrates its 5th birthday July 19, and we’re celebrating with the entire OpenStack community during July! Cloud interoperability and support for developer productivity have been focuses for the OpenStack project this year, and none of it would be possible without the quickly growing OpenStack community.
