   <section><title>What is Gump?</title>
 
   <p>
-    <strong>Gump is a social experiment.</strong>  The primary goal of Gump is
to get diverse
-    projects to communicate early and often about integration, dependencies,
-    and versioning management.  One way to think about it is that some of the
-    concepts of
-    <link href="http://www.extremeprogramming.org/">Extreme programming</link>
-    applied to
-    <link href="http://www.martinfowler.com/articles/continuousIntegration.html">
-    Continuous Integration</link> on an unprecedented scale.
+Gump is Apache's continuous integration tool. It is written in python and fully supports
Apache Ant, 
+Apache Maven and other build tools. Gump is unique in that it builds and compiles software
against 
+the latest development versions of those projects. This allows gump to detect potentially

+incompatible changes to that software just a few hours after those changes are checked into
the 
+version control system. Notifications are sent to the project team as soon as such a change
is 
+detected, referencing more detailed reports available online.
   </p>

   <p>
-    Essentially, the reasoning goes like this - if continuous integration is a
-    good thing on a small project, why not apply it recursively and include all
-    dependencies for which access to source is provided?
+You can set up and run Gump on your own machine and run it on your own projects, however
it is 
+currently most famous for building most of Apache's java-based projects and their dependencies
(which 
+constitutes several million lines of code split up into hundreds of projects). For this purpose,
the 
+gump project maintains its own dedicated server.

to install/manage public/private/cascaded Gumps,
-  	and generally spread Gump to an even broader section of the OSS community. Interested?<br/>
