I’m looking to get the postgresql-evr RPM installed on the Jenkins slaves so Katello tests can use it. What is the process for doing so? Alternatively, is installing postgresql-evr something that can happen during test time?
I don’t know too much about how the test pipeline works, but I’m curious what might have to happen when a new version of postgresql-evr is released. Will supporting multiple postgresql-evr versions for different versions of Katello be an issue?
I don’t envision postgresql-evr to be needing many revisions, but is it the case where one revision is already too much? I suppose it would be okay if we can maintain backwards compatibility. Looks like this is also going to be an issue for postgresql-debversion.
Yeah, the only really way we plan to use it is going to be:
Creating a column of this custom type
calling a function within a few triggers to populate that column
Sorting by that column
The only update i could see is that if we found a bug within the functions or type definition itself, which seems like it could be resolved independent of the application. So i don’t see many updates to this, and if there are i imagine they would be fairly early into our implementation of it, and backwards compatible.
