Buildbot and the test farm

Brief introduction

How to maintain code integrity despite numerous modifications (including bug insertion) ? This is addressed by maintaining a test suite, combining reference input files and corresponding output files, against which all modifications of ABINIT are confronted, especially when a merge request in the trunk is issued. For ABINIT, a test farm with about twenty “builders” spread on a dozen of different computers, is available for running such test suite on different architecture and operating systems.

Buildbot is the software used to launch and analyze the automatic tests of ABINIT on the ETSF test farm.
