Weekly Juju Charm Updates for the Week of 24 April

Agenda Items: - Questions - Charm Testing - Charm Docs - Framework Charms - Workflow

Questions from the Community

  • Rick and Aaron - How do relations between charms work so we can show it on the website/GUI?
    • We want to show which charms relate to what so users can discover which charms go “good” with other charms.
    • If you are on the apache page you’d show Wordpress, not nginx, etc.
    • Do we want to show most downloaded, most reviewed?
    • We need a definition of what a “related charm” is.
    • Mims - 2 sides need to implement the same interface,
    • Sort by quality or downloads? Provides vs. Requires?

We’ll walk the interfaces graph, show all charms, sort by reviewed/download/ratings as related.

  • Nelson Roberts joined the hangout and asked about Juju/Rackspace; openstack provider works, waiting on their cloud to be more vanilla, we should Just Work on there soon.

Meta Data Categories and Icons in Charms.

  • Charm Proof gives a warning
  • Policy does include meta-data for categories, we need to also update for icons

Charm Testing

  • reliable testing for graph and embedded! Go Marco!
  • https://jenkins.qa.ubuntu.com/view/Precise/view/Precise%20Charms/
  • embedded test will run, if one is not available then a basic smoke test (charm goes to running) is ran.
  • To go live with the GUI/jujucharms.com soonish, all integrated so it’s more in our face than off in jenkins somewhere.


  • Docs branch:- https://code.launchpad.net/~evilnick/juju/go-juju-docs
  • Will go live soonish, not for 13.04.
