GCC, GNU Toolchain Finally Working To Establish CI/CD For Better Reliability
Thanks to Red Hat engineers working on it, the GNU toolchain is working towards CI/CD support for helping to ensure the quality of the toolchain and hopefully catching any regressions immediately compared to the status quo.
The Red Hat engineers working on the CI/CD for the GNU toolchain have begun with the GNU C Library (Glibc) and will be working their way through all of the toolchain components.
The initial integration with Glibc is happening via its patchwork.
Another step in GNU Toolchain modernization: CI/CD https://t.co/LSdSechJa3— GCC - GNU Toolchain (@gnutools) May 5, 2021
There has been some Buildbot testing of GNU toolchain components mostly on ARM/AArch64, but good to see Red Hat pursuing a broader Ci/CD approach for ideally enhancing the quality of this open-source compiler toolchain moving forward once all of the pieces are in place.
