[Gluster-infra] Request to announce changes to build.gluster.org, Jenkins and the automated testing environment

Hi all,

today we were informed [0] about failures in the regression tests when 
./tests/basic/rpm.t [1] was executed. The cause for these failures seem 
to be restricted to the Jenkins environment, manual testing on 
build.gluster.org did not have any problems.

We would appreciate it if any changes to the build environment like [2] 
were announced to the gluster-infra at gluster.org maillinglist (on CC).  
This issue caused several hours of testing (regression tests are slow) 
and delayed the review and merging of changes. A heads-up on the change 
would have given an idea where to look and the problem would have been 
solved [3] much quicker.

Thanks in advance,
Niels, and everyone who got hit by 404 errors in the regression tests

[1] This test-script takes the sources, builds a tarball a src.rpm and 
rebuilds all the rpms inside a "mock" environment. During this test, 
several chroot environments are build from packages that are available 
in the Fedora EPEL repositories.

[2] The failure seems to have been introduced by a proxy server that is 
setup (through environment variables?), and which does not allow 
contacting the Fedora EPEL mirrors.

[3] The proxy server has been explicitly disabled in 
/etc/mock/site-defaults.cfg, so that yum does not use the proxy anymore.
