jeremiah.foster added a comment to T398: Settings/Installer mismatch: user images are different.

Is there a link to the ISO? I'm planning on doing some testing of images so that we can measure 'reproducibility', knowing which image was used as the ISO for PureOS installation in this bug will serve as a good starting point. If this is no longer an issue, perhaps we close the issue?

There is an RSS bot that reposts Purism blog posts in the #community-general:talk.puri.sm room. I'm afraid I don't have any details, and the person that implemented it is away. But if you can generate RSS output that might be a start!

mak added a comment to T700: unspecified which installer is currently stable and released, and what versions of which packages it contains.

@jeremiah.foster Currently I manually trigger builds by running a command on the archive server. I could likely give you access to that with permission of the sysadmins. Since the automated builds might be very slow though and the system will override the previous image in case there is more than one image build on the same day, I think that you might be happier with a manual image build.

That took awhile! But the whole process ran. I rebooted (the computer wouldn't shut down properly) and tried connecting via wifi. No luck. It wont even recognize available networks, which it has done in the past.
Incidentally, the error I've been getting from when I tried installing Linux mint definitely has something to do with the touchpad, but I've tried installing LM with the touchpad turned off and no dice.
So I can't install Mint, but I can install PureOS but can't get the driver for the wifi card.
Hmmmmm. I haven't given up yet.

I won't extend the existing codebase much (except for bugfixes) and instead just work on the new component versions for now, which unfortunately means very slow progress for a while.

Great, thanks for the reply. What triggers the build? Is it possible for me to trigger a build? I'd like to test our PureOS ISO for reproducible builds so I'd like to build two images of PureOS twice and test with diffostat.

mak added a comment to T700: unspecified which installer is currently stable and released, and what versions of which packages it contains.

@jeremiah.foster There isn't a formal testing process. I check whether the system boots, installs and runs through the initial setup and the initial experience looks okay. Others do that as well on different hardware, and if nobody reports any major issues, the image is good to go.
If there was a particular change on the installer or initial setup that might have broken something, I will look at that change in more detail to see if really everything works as expected.
But that's about it, nothing fancy (or even structured) is currently happening.

Ehhh... What?
The latest release on https://downloads.pureos.net/ is the current one, and once it has been tested the released one (which should happen very quickly, ideally). If a release is considered broken, it is either removed or a more recent one is built.
Each and every image build is accompanied by a .packages files which lists the contained packages and their versions in details. See https://downloads.pureos.net/live/gnome/2019-02-10/pureos-8.0-gnome-live_20190210-amd64.packages for example.
There are also detailed file listings of stuff included in the installation images, as well as a build log and checksums (the former of which also contains all information on package versions).
