Meeting summary

    1. hongbo (hongbo1, 14:00:44)

  1. approval of last minutes (hongbo1, 14:03:45)
    1. Bin Hu (bin_, 14:04:45)
    2. the IPV6 has been merged inthe dovetail. the dovetail has the first testcase. (hongbo1, 14:09:36)

  2. test cases plan (hongbo1, 14:09:52)
    1. Hongbo proposed that we invite people to add test case candidates to the Dovetail test use cases page, and then proceed to select test cases to add to the Dovetail test suite (dneary, 14:23:24)
    2. https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/dovetail/Dovetail+test+use+cases (dneary, 14:23:44)
    3. Dave Neary said that there are a number of tests there which are not appropriate for Dovetail already, and he is concerned that encouraging people to add test cases to the page creates an incorrect assumption that they will be added to the test suite (dneary, 14:24:32)
    4. Dave suggests that we need a checklist which can be used to independently verify if proposed test cases satisfy the minimum criteria for being added to the test suite, based on the test case requirements document (dneary, 14:25:21)
    5. https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=6827269 (dneary, 14:25:34)
    6. We need to agree on test case requirements (that page is still a draft) before inviting people to add test cases (dneary, 14:25:59)
    7. Pierre suggests that we could add columns to the table to make it easy to see if a test case satisfies the requirements, and we should update the page to ensure it is clear that test cases listed are test case candidates (dneary, 14:26:46)
    8. first thing we need the test case requirements draft (hongbo1, 14:30:27)
    9. Hongbo and Dave agreed that we need to finalise the test case requirements page. We need a process for converging on an agreement. (dneary, 14:31:55)
    10. Draft test case requirements: https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=6827269 (dneary, 14:32:16)
    11. Hongbo proposes that we start to add tests to the test suite once we agree on criteria, in parallel to adding new tests (dneary, 14:35:18)
    12. Pierre says that we are mixing test cases and use cases - for example, vPing is not a test case, it is a use case. (dneary, 14:35:41)
    13. Hongbo asks that Dovetail team members add comments to test case proposals to help filter test case proposals next week (dneary, 14:39:27)
    14. Pierre says we need to mark the page "candidate test cases" to clarify that these are not the Dovetail test cases (dneary, 14:40:01)
    15. agreement: we can add mark to the test cases wiki and to filter some test case to get the last test cases for the dovetail (hongbo1, 14:43:09)
    16. Candidate Dovetail test use cases: https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/dovetail/Candidate+Dovetail+test+use+cases (dneary, 14:44:23)
    17. Dave modified the page title and introduction to clarify the process for adding new test cases. (dneary, 14:44:43)

  3. test tools (hongbo1, 14:44:59)
    1. Dave asks if there is anything required from the Ubuntu runtime to run the test suite, and whether the test suite can run against an Apex SUT (dneary, 14:47:03)
    2. Leo answers that functest uses Ubuntu, Dovetail developers did not investigate whether there was any hard requirement, they are just doing the same thing (dneary, 14:47:47)
    3. since Functest can run against multiple scenarios, the test suite should not not depend on specific operating systems in the SUT (dneary, 14:48:18)
    4. https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=7766287 (hongbo1, 14:50:40)
    5. Dave asks if there is a design document for the test tool, to understand how it works and what someone needs to do to run the test suite (dneary, 14:50:50)
    6. Leo points to the "Dovetail scripts(draft)" page in the wiki (dneary, 14:51:14)
    7. Dovetail scripts(draft): https://wiki.opnfv.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=7766287 (dneary, 14:51:24)
    8. Dave asks if there is a document showing how to run the test suite, and what the test tool does when run (dneary, 14:55:29)
    9. Leo says there is a document on how to run the test tool, but it has not yet been submitted to Gerrit. (dneary, 14:57:52)
    10. Dave will create a Jira to track the documentation of the test tool (dneary, 14:58:45)

Meeting ended at 15:00:07 UTC (full logs).
