This EPIC tracks the tasks related to the Spring 2021's Packer images update of our infrastructure.
The functional goal is to have VM images for at least ci.jenkins and infra.ci that:
- Are up to date as per April/May 2021 (OS/packages/tools/packer)
- Should NOT trigger any alert (minor or major) on the Jenkins's controller UIs
- Provides platform supports for: windows/amd64, linux/arm64, linux/amd64
- Provides secured Docker Engine for all the different platforms
- Allows to spawn an agent in less then 10 min, with a target at 2-3 minutes
- Reproducible either locally, in ci.jenkins.io's current job, and in infra.ci (kube)
