In order to make sure that nobody is prevented from reviewing due to not having a suitable development environment available, the PostgreSQL community is offering free virtual machines for reviewing and testing patches for this CommitFest.
If you want a VM for this purpose, please email me the following at any point during the CF:
- Your public SSH key.
- Which patch(es) you intend to review/test.
- Preference for CentOS or Ubuntu.
- When you expect to do the review.
VMs will come equipped with all tools required to build PostgreSQL, plus a checkout of the PostgreSQL code from the beginning of the CF. You may need to install additional requirements yourself if you are reviewing extensions or special features with dependencies.
Note that I may take a day to respond with your VM access.
