We have a Debian-sid builder. Also add Fedora?

For the record it would also helped with catching earlier for #23373
It will help with GC to test integration with latets binutils, glibc, kernel,... (latest versions generally pop sooner in Fedora than in Debian)
I would be happy (as Fedora's GC maintainer) to help with maintaining it and investigating and fixing the build failures.
Can you advise what can I do to help make it happen?

Well, adding a Fedora container is trivial & easy for us. But the downside is we'd be using the Linux kernel of . That's a pretty recent kernel always, but might be configured differently than Fedora.

We could add a full Fedora VM image (as we do for a dozen other non-Linux operating systems/versions), but it's more work. (We need to prepare a script which when run on Linux produces a bootable GCE VM image. See the Plan 9 and BSDs in

Sorry for longer reply time.

I think that both could be beneficial. For containers I think that fedora:rawhide and fedora:latest should be used to test both against the unstable rawhide and latest stable release. Rawhide more like non-blocking smoke test(it could be broken/stale from time to time).

After taking quick peak at the GCE and the scripts. It doesn't support the regular AWS or openstack image formats, right?(Fedora Cloud images are produced for those.) Is there some summary of what needs GCE and Go CI to run(it would be much easier than revers engineering the scripts)?
