QA Topics

* Do we want to adopt/encourage use of pgTAP for database changes? There is also a script that can generate a baseline set of tests for verifying the entire Evergreen schema; we could use that script once and forever after maintain those scripts whenever we develop database upgrade scripts. Thoughts? – Jason

DB maintenance plan

* Mike Rylander re-raises the proposal of carving the baseline SQL schema files in stone at major releases and using change-specific upgrade scripts to roll forward to a given, known-good state at minor version and revision upgrades. Benefits:

  • Reduced schema churn
    • More people can take more time to understand the schema
    • Make deprecate/supercede scripts useful, which means the functionality might materialize
    • Realistically clear the way for an intelligent upgrade scripts that inspect config.upgrade_log and apply exactly what is needed
  • Simpler change management
    • Do things in one place, not two
    • Committers have less to do AND to test

Hack-A-Way 2013 plans

* Question raised on whether there's a list of attendees / list of topic areas

  • Suggestion to create a wiki page similar to last year's Hack-A-Way with ideas (see old page)
