Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20101215" by StefanBodewig
Date Wed, 03 Nov 2010 05:18:51 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Gump Wiki" for change notification.

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20101215" page has been changed by StefanBodewig.


New page:
Apache Gump is a cross-project continuous integration server.  It is different from "usual"
CI servers in that it expects the individual project builds to succeed; its purpose is to
check the integration of a project with the latest code rather than a fixed version of the
project's dependencies.  If you want a more traditional nightly build server, Gump is not
for you.  Use Gump if you want to know when a change in your dependencies breaks your project
or when your changes break other projects.

Gump's intention isn't so much to be a CI server but rather a vehicle that makes people look
beyond their project's boundaries and helps the projects to collaborate.

Gump is written in Python and supports several build tools and version control systems.  The
Apache installation of Gump builds many ASF projects and their dependencies.  It started in
the Java part of the foundation but also builds projects like APR, HTTPd and log4net.

== Summary ==
Some development that lead to support for Maven 3.x, work on project branding requirements,
no issues.

== Issues ==

There are no Board level issues.

== Community ==

The Gump project really consists of two parts, the code base for the project and the ASF installations[1]
running this code base to build many ASF projects as well as some related projects.

The code base mostly does what its current users need so there isn't much development going
on at all.  No new committers have been added.

All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure the ASF installations.
 There are a few people contributing across all projects and a few additional people maintaining
the metadata of the projects they are interested in the most.

No changes to the PMC.

== Development ==

Gump now supports Maven 3.x as builder but at the time this report is written no project uses

== Releases ==

The ASF installations of Gump work on the latest code base almost all of the time.  The project
is in a state of a perpetual beta.  There have been no releases.

== Infrastructure ==

We've asked the infra team for a new VM to run Gump on top of Apache Harmony.  Mark Hindess
of the Harmony community volunteered to help with the Harmony side of things.

== Statistics ==

As of Sun, 12 Sep 2010 the ASF installations check out a bit less than 200 source trees (113
from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit less than 600 "projects".  A complete Gump
run takes more than nine hours on vmgump and eight on the FreeBSD jail.
