PDAL regression tests are run on a per-commit basis by at least two continuous integration platforms.
The Travis continuous integration platform runs the PDAL test suite on Alpine Linux. The build status and other supporting information can be found at https://travis-ci.org/PDAL/PDAL Its configuration can be found at https://github.com/PDAL/PDAL/blob/master/.travis.yml All administrators of the GitHub PDAL group have rights to modify the Travis configuration.
It uses the
alpine:edge Docker image found at
https://hub.docker.com/_/alpine/ as a base platform. If you want to add new
functionality based on a dependency, you will need to ensure that the dependency
is available in https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/packages and update the Travis
configuration YAML accordingly.
PDAL uses the AppVeyor continuous integration platform to run the PDAL compilation and test suite on Windows. The build status and other supporting information can be found at https://ci.appveyor.com/project/hobu/pdal Its configuration can be found at https://github.com/PDAL/PDAL/blob/master/appveyor.yml All administrators of the GitHub PDAL group have rights to modify the AppVeyor configuration.
Howard Butler currently pays the bill to run in the AppVeyor upper performance processing tier. The AppVeyor configuration depends on Conda for dependencies. If you want to add new test functionality based on a dependency, you will need to update Conda with a new package to do so.
