Changes since Kiwi TCMS 11.5



  • Update django-extensions from 3.2.0 to 3.2.1

  • Update jira from 3.4.0 to 3.4.1

  • Update psycopg2 from 2.9.3 to 2.9.5

  • Update pygithub from 1.55 to 1.57

  • Update tzdata from 2022.2 to 2022.6

  • Container is now built on top of Red Hat Enteroprise Linux 9 and Python 3.9


    There is high risk of breaking downstream containers. Pay attention to bind-mounted settings files. Inspect downstream Dockerfile & docker-compose.yml files !!!

  • Unify some translation strings

  • Document add-on issue tracker integrations

  • Rename Properties to Parameters because "test case parameters" is more widely used

Bug fixes

  • JIRA.get_issue_type_from_jira() now accepts a second argument. Fixes Issue #2929 (@cmbahadir)
  • Fix typo in documentation (Christian Clauss)
  • Trim white-space after splitting parameter values. For example the inputs 'OS=Linux' and 'OS = Windows ' will result in Key: 'OS', Values: ['Linux', 'Windows']

Refactoring and testing

  • Update Fedora from 32 to 36 in /tests/bugzilla
  • Remove Travis CI config b/c we don't use it anymore
  • Add Coverity Scan as a GitHub action
  • Don't scan devel dependencies with Coverity Scan
  • Redirect to where we came from in case posting a comment results in invalid form
  • Configure Dependabot to update Docker containers and try tightening security around docker containers used during testing
  • Use npm audit fix to automatically update some Node.js dependecies
  • Execute npm audit signatures when installing Node.js packages
  • Start using find_namespace_packages() to resolve 'Package would be ignored' warnings from setuptools
  • Add missing field in setup() to avoid a warning
