[RFE] add group priorities
Last modified: 2013-04-15 04:42:23 EDT
Description of problem:
I am in 3 groups, general, desktop and wireless but I am still receiving machines from wireless lab. Those machine are really network restricted so not good for my general tests. I need to execute tests in wireless lab from time to time too.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I would like to set highest priority to desktop group (to use our machines), then general if our pool is fully occupied and then wireless.
Specifying <group op="!=" value="GROUP_TO_EXCLUDE"/> works for me to avoid using machines with special-HW from one group to be used for tasks which:
- could run on anything and/or
- belong to other group
This often results in longer wait time for me, but is believed to increase the universe happiness sum.
Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.
For Beaker 1.1, we should be implementing the concept of "System Pools", which will allow this behaviour to be controlled through a different mechanism.
