I want to use the chance after a new release is out, to ask if
people have interests in sending U-Boot Testresults to


Of course you can use tbot ([2],[7]) for doing all the stuff automated
([2], [3], [4]), but it is enough to create the data by hand and push
a testresult to this server (After you get access to it ...) for example
with my testscript [6]... but I recommend to use tbot, as you also
can use tbot for your daily work.

If enough data is collected for a board, you can get a graphic which
shows the progress of image size for your board, like:

As the server code is on github [5], I am open for more ideas, what
sort of data we want to collect and what we may do with the data...



[2] Example tbot implementation I use for the boards which are in [1]

     Example config for socrates board:

     tbot board config:

     config for using U-Boots

     add patches to U-Boot mainline:

     UBoot builder config (for the "pollux" lab) with enabling some extra
     Kconfig options for the U-Boot test:

[3] tbot generator for pushing to the database:

[4] Minimal "CI" (something like a cron job, but in python):

     and the config for my currently 4 boards:

[5] server code:

[6] script for pushing results to it (by hand):

     This is just an test script from me, it needs cleanup, and of course
     adaptions to work for others ...
