It's the Gump descriptor.

Before, Gump used that directly to run, but then Sam wanted to tackle 
the compilation problems himself (thanks Sam :-) and copied it over to 
the Gump repo.

To keep the two in synch IMHO it should be only one, so I'd like to see 
ours being used for both Gump, the build, and jar check-update.
