New `quick` stage in VTK CI

VTK has introduced a new stage in CI named quick. The purpose of this new stage is to allow running a quick subset of of the VTK tests to identify issues before running the full test suite.

When running CI in VTK, developers should first attempt to run the quick stage with the robot by commenting…

Do: test --stage quick

This will run the quick subset of representative set of tests for all platforms.

Once the quick stage finishes and shows all green builds and tests, run the full test suite using the familiar robot command…

Do: test

This new workflow should significantly reduce the load on the CI infrastructure and reduce VTK MR lifetimes as CI is able to better keep pace with development.


make sure to rebase your ongoing MR on master to access this new stage.
