I’m not sure if this is the forum to ask this query. I was wondering how the CentOS making sure that it work with different architectures, machine models etc. Is there any team to do all these testing ?
Thanks Sudeesh John
not sure if you are fishing or want to go swimming. ;-)
have a look at these links.
This isn’t for CentOS, but for RHEL:
… although I suspect much of it will apply to CentOS too. But if it doesn’t, don’t blame CentOS.
Thanks for the replies. I understood that a major part of testing being done by Redhat. But after repackaging the sources how doest CentOS make sure the integrity of the product. Is it being done by a dedicated team or by community ?
It’s done by the community.
The testing that is done is performed by our volunteer QA team. We also use the t_functional test suite:
You can see the output of the t_functional tests here:
BUT .. CentOS is a use it if it meets your requirements and “YOU” are the authority who decides if it meets your standards and your requirements for fitness, etc.
The CentOS EULA is here:
So, you need to decide what you want for security testing, security auditing, bugs testing, intrusion detection, or accreditation. The CentOS team provides no statement of fitness or assurance of any kind.
Quite simply, we build the source code that Red Hat releases for RHEL, debranding as required by their trademark policy. If it meets your requirements for fitness then you can use it as you see fit. But you assume all responsibility for determining fitness for use.
