Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Enforce Gerrit for Simrel?

Interesting. When did this happen? There are many contributions still using mutable URLs.

The validation results are unreliable as the aggregation build is not safely reproducible. A failed validation result is just as likely to be due to someone changing their already-contributed repository.

Is there a bug on the topic of unreliable validation results? I agree that having them reliable seems to be a preliminary requirement.
By the way, some time ago, we discussed the idea of policies about contributing immutable URLs and fully qualified versions to Simrel, in order to provide predictability and reproducibility. Have these ideas been abandoned? If we were to enforce review, we could put additional checks to verify at least that versions are fully qualified.


The planning council has made this a requirement for Neon. I'm not sure how enforceable this is going to be but if everyone follows the rules, the aggregate build will be reproducible.
