Continuous integration (CI) has become increasingly prevalent in open-source
projects over the last few years. Intel has been active in building CI
systems for graphics, both for the kernel
side and for the Mesa-based
user-space side of the equation. Mark Janes and Clayton Craft gave a
presentation on Intel’s Mesa CI system at the 2018 X.Org Developers
Conference (XDC), which was held in A Coruña, Spain in late September.
The Mesa CI system is one of the earliest successful CI initiatives in open
source that he
knows of, Janes said. It is a core component of Mesa development,
especially at Intel.
