[Macario, Gianpaolo] I confirm Mentor Graphics interest in supporting the GENIVI CI/CD initiative.

>From the technical standpoint I did some further investigations about the feasibility of hosting one Go agent inside Mentor Graphics lab infrastructure.

Unfortunately I got the confirmation of my initial findings during the SAT 2015 F2F-6, i.e. that our corporate firewall filters outgoing TCP port 8153 as this is considered a non-standard port.
Please see [1] for details.


I highlight this fact for the awareness of other companies who may plan to donate agents.

I am going to discuss with IT some alternative plans - i.e. renting a public cloud instance, or hosting the agent on a different network, but getting management approval on this might take longer than my original expectations.
