Oops sorry, to test you’ll need a commit like this. Your password won’t be exposed unless you checkout use the specific revision before the fix ;)

Hi All,

Please note that an edge case was recently discovered in maintainer-quality-tools that caused Runbot implementations using runbot_travis2docker to expose the host database password when the Odoo container exits with a non-zero code. 

I committed the fix yesterday, but it is recommended that you change your Runbot PostgreSQL password immediately if your Runbot deploy meets the following conditions:

  • Runbot that builds using the module runbot_travis2docker
  • Runbot instance has a configured database host (as opposed to the default `localhost`)
  • Runbot test logs are exposed to the public

For anyone that wants to confirm whether your password has been exposed:
