Enable riscv64 builders for ubuntu-mysql team

Asked by Otto Kekäläinen

I can see riscv64 as an option for builders at https://launchpad.net/~mysql-ubuntu/+archive/ubuntu/mariadb-10.11/+edit but it is greyed out and I can't select it.

Can riscv64 be enabled for the repository so it is easier to test riscv64 builds?

Gianfranco is now forking the package in Ubuntu in vain in https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mariadb/1:10.11.1-3ubuntu1 and if we had riscv64 builders this episoid maybe could have been avoided.

The riscv64 build was already passing in https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mariadb/1:10.11.1-2 and https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mariadb/1:10.11.1-3

This one person with upload permissions however decided to upload https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mariadb/1:10.11.1-3ubuntu1 to test how a patch affects the build. This would better have been tested in a test repository/build if riscv64 builds were enabled in https://launchpad.net/~mysql-ubuntu

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said :

We can currently only do this for Canonical staff and Ubuntu core developers, because our current riscv64 builders aren't secure enough against one build making changes to a builder that persist into other builds. There's infrastructure work in progress which will allow us to fix this (after which it will become available as a self-service option), but it's likely to take at least another month or two.

Can you help with this problem?
