How to review conformance results

Technical Requirements

  1. Verify that the list of files matches the expected list.

  2. Note the $spec/vX.Y subdirectory that the PR is in, this is the spec and version of OCI for which conformance is being claimed, referenced as the “Conformance Version” from hereon.

  3. Verify that the Conformance Version is the current or previous two versions of the OCI spec.

  4. Look at report.html. Verify that the major.minor version defined in the report summary both exactly match the Conformance Version. The patch version does not matter.

  5. Look at report.html. Verify that the summary contains the text “All tests passed”.

Policy Requirements

  1. Confirm that the vendor is currently a member (TODO: link) of OCI. If they are not, request that they reach out to OCI (TODO: email) to become a member in order to complete their certification. (Companies can alternatively pay a certfication fee equal to the cost of membership if, for whatever reason, they don’t wish to become an OCI member.) Alternatively, non-profit organizations (including community distributions like Debian) can certify at no cost.

Review the PRODUCT.yaml file, and:

  1. Verify that there is a Participation Form on file for the vendor, and that the vendor is in good standing in the program.

  2. Verify the product name and website_url are listed in the “Qualifying Offerings” section of the vendor’s Participation Form, i.e. that the name and website_url are listed.

  3. Review the name. The name should not contain the term “OCI”.

If the submission doesn’t meet all policy requirements, reply with a message indicating “Signed participation form needed”, “Files missing from PR”, “Membership in OCI or confirmation of non-profit status needed”, etc.

Tasks to Complete After Review

  1. Update the OCI Distributions & Platforms spreadsheet (TODO: link) to reflect the vendor’s certified offering.

  2. Add the vendor’s information to the OCI landscape (TODO: link), which also causes them to appear on (TODO: link) and (TODO: link).

  3. Add a comment saying “You are now OCI Certified” and merge the PR.
