Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20130918" by StefanBodewig

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20130918" page has been changed by StefanBodewig:

New page:
Apache Gump is a cross-project continuous integration server.  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 ASF as well as non-ASF projects and their dependencies.
 It started in the Java part of the foundation but also builds projects like APR, HTTPd and

== Summary ==
The set of projects has been stripped down to those who actively expressed interest in the
service, we seem to be able to handle the reduced set well.

== 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.

== Activity ==
In late June we sent an email to the dev lists of all ASF projects that were built by Gump
asking the communities whether they'd still be interested in the service.  Of all communities
only the Tomcat, POI, XML Graphics and Forrest dev teams asked to continue the Gump builds,
log4net asked to drop the builds and the rest ignored the mail and was deemed not interested.

Since mid-August Gump only builds the projects who signalled interest as well as their dependencies,
nag mails have been turned off for all projects who don't want them.  One result was immediate
interest by the Tomcat and FOP communities to get their builds green again.

== Infrastructure == 
We've given nback our FreeBSD jail and now concentrate on a single installation on vmgump.

== Changes to the Roster ==
All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure the ASF installations.

No new committers to the code base, no changes to the PMC.  The most recent addition to the
PMC was in December 2006 when we added Sander Temme.
