Subject Gump PMC Board Report
Date Fri, 18 Jun 2004 09:28:47 GMT
We've been very happy playing with the new machine and brutus has been
turned into the "official" Gump instance, i.e. the one that is sending
nightly nag mails when things go wrong and that people use as
reference.  Many thanks to Sam Ruby and Leo Simons who provided
personal infrastructure for this purpose in the past.

The speed of Brutus combined with a new way to generate the website
dynamically allows us to run Gump more than once per day and has
already led to some new uses, like sending out "good news nags" when
things are no longer broken. Notifications are also now sent "when
first detected" (as well as on the nightly 'official' run) which can
dramatically shorten the detection/discussion/resolution cycle.

Gump has assisted in detecting a number of issues, including a big one
with log4j deprecation which raised excellent discussion and awareness
on Apache's and "good" deprecation/release policies. More information
is available on Gump's Blog[1].

Gump has started to successfully build its first live project using
Maven, we hope to extend this success to Geronimo soon. The main
integration issue is that of 'artefact id' (how a collection of code
is identified). This is good practical community work; a precursor to
an (automated/shared) Apache Repository[2].

Gump is starting to see more 'personal Gumps', as folks install Gump
for their own private (and public) projects.
