ReleaseEngineering/How To/Update BuildAPI

BuildAPI is composed of a web application plus an agent that runs on a few buildmasters (self-serve agent). Also see ReleaseEngineering/BuildAPI

So, how do you update one of those?


Bump the version in if you haven't already done so in your patch, get review and land in the repo.

Build a new sdist tarball of BuildAPI, using normal python techniques, and upload it to the puppetagain python repository at (/data/python/packages on the distinguished puppetmaster).

You will need this diff in your local copy of setup.cfg:

diff --git a/setup.cfg b/setup.cfg
--- a/setup.cfg
+++ b/setup.cfg
@@ -1,5 +1,5 @@
-tag_build = dev
-tag_svn_revision = true
+tag_build =
+tag_svn_revision = 0

In detail:

 python sdist
 scp dist/buildapi-0.2.4.tar.gz
 sudo mv buildapi-0.2.4.tar.gz /data/python/packages
 cd /data/python/packages
 sudo chown puppetsync:puppetsync buildapi-0.2.4.tar.gz
 sudo chmod 664 buildapi-0.2.4.tar.gz

Web Application

Login to and become root. Go to

  • /data/releng-stage/src/buildapi for staging
  • /data/releng/src/buildapi for production

and have a look at README.txt.

If 0.2.4 is the version you want to install, it boils down to:

 ./update 0.2.4

Self-Serve Agent

Update the buildapi version in puppet, get review, land, and merge to production. Puppet will deploy within 60 minutes, usually within 30.
