32Production deployment notes
35In Launchpad's production build farm, launchpad-buildd is deployed via base
36virtual machine images constructed by taking standard Ubuntu cloud images
37and installing launchpad-buildd in them from
38 This is done
41(currently private, sorry).
43At present (May 2020), all these base VM images are built from Ubuntu
44xenial, and launchpad-buildd runs on Python 2. We plan to upgrade these to
45bionic soon, where it will be possible for launchpad-buildd to run on Python
463; however, it's necessary to support the powerpc architecture until at
47least April 2021 (end of standard maintenance for xenial), and the powerpc
48base images will need to stay on xenial since that architecture is no longer
49supported by bionic. As a result, launchpad-buildd must run on both Python
502 and 3 for the time being.
