+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.
+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.
+== Editing gump descriptors ==
+The gump metadata is currently still kept in CVS. Check it out in the right
+location using
+   ./gump get-metadata :ext:$

+be placed under metadata/project. Please use our validation commands before
+committing changed descriptors:
+   ./gump validate
+remember that the metadata is a CVS checkout, so commit using
+   cvs commit -m "Useful message here please!" metadata/
+thanks for helping out!
+== More Information ==

+also generate that documentation using forrest. To do so, run
