There was talk of trying to set up test infrastructure that would roll out Essex and then upgrade it to Folsom in some automated fashion so we could start learning where it breaks. Was there any forward momentum on that?
This would be awesome. Wrapping automated tests around upgrades would
greatly improve the situation. Most of the issues that ops runs into
during upgrades are unexpected changes, which are the same things that
will likely be hit when testing upgrades in an automated way.
