[petsc-dev] Pause-for-approval Pipelines?

Hello All,

Why does one pipeline request spawn two separate pipelines now? Specifically one is a normal pipeline whereas the other includes some sort of manual approval button which “runs” indefinitely if you don’t either cancel it or approve it. I think this was somewhat discussed in a previous MR (https://gitlab.com/petsc/petsc/-/merge_requests/3063 <https://gitlab.com/petsc/petsc/-/merge_requests/3063>) which indicates it is useful for doing a pipeline of the branch+destination but how is this different from the existing merge-train infrastructure that was already in place? It is annoying to have to manually go in and cancel the phony pipeline every time (not to mention twice as many emails from gitlab notifying me the femtosecond these pipelines fail).

Best regards,

Jacob Faibussowitsch
