Parallel Deployments (or parallel: true anywhere)



We use Circle to do container based deployments using custom tooling. One of our deploys has 8 containers, so it takes over ~25 minutes to complete the deploy step serially. If we could do that in parallel it would be great. All the syntax we need is already available in the test section (parallel: true + files) but that doesn’t work in the deployment section, and it’s confusing to move it all into the test section (but we may do that in the near term as a workaround.)

We could also script our own parallelism in bash, but that makes the resulting output very hard to understand.
