14th Feb 2020: IAC Team Status Update
The IAC team has been working on a lot of interesting things over the past week. Here’s a brief overview of what we’ve been up to:
Updates to Puppet Modules
We’ve released an update to two modules since last week:
We’ll have more module releases next week, but a few interesting updates to come:
- puppetlabs-java: Thanks to timdeluxe for the PR to add support for AdoptOpen JDK to the module. fraenki was also a great help in getting this PR over the line. We’ll releasing an update to the module soon!
- puppetlabs-mysql: This is a nice PR from mauricemeyer that now allows a user to override the default configuration for mysql, if you wish. Thanks to bastelfreak for the help during the review stages.
- puppetlabs-apt: anarcat submitted this fix which also highlighted an issue with our tests. Two for the price of one! Thanks to bastelfreak and baldurmen for the reviews, too.
We’re still buzzing about Honeycomb
We’re continuing to see the benefits of Honeycomb. To make life easier, we now have the rspec_honeycomb_formatter. When you add this gem to a project’s Gemfile, it will create a Custom formatter in RSpec that will capture the metrics we’re interested in, then send it to the configured Honeycomb endpoint for processing!
Supported Modules Litmus Conversion
We’re starting to get to the bottom of the list of modules still to be converted to Litmus. We’re wrapping up on puppetlabs-powershell, puppetlabs-sqlserver and puppetlabs-vsphere. Converting to Litmus makes testing of the modules for both ourselves at Puppet and contributors from the Community, a much easier experience. If you’re interested in porting a module to Litmus, feel free to reach out to us during Office Hours - we’ll be glad to help!
