Subject Gump Report September 2007
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 03:53:53 GMT

    * during the reporting time we've received a brand new machine to
      replace the old vmgump.  Gump was switched over to the new
      machine with very little downtime, which really was awesome.
      Many thanks to the infrastructure team and Leo.


    * we've migrated a few more projects to use Maven2 builds and
      managed to get above 85% successful builds on vmgump, which is
      quite nice.  Still we need to do something to make the Maven2
      builds work the Gump way.  Some experiments have been started in
      svn, but nothing that could be used as the real solution has
      been reached, yet.

    * Looking at the Gump zone[1], switching to Java6 would bring our
      success ratio down immediately.  As usual some of the core APIs
      in Java have changed (this time it's JDBC again, as it was with
      Java 1.4 - in Java5 it was JAXP) and projects relying on them
      have been broken.  This is nothing Gump could fix, but it gives
      a good indication of how widely supported (or not) Java6 may be
      right now in the projects we build.


    * still all Apache committers have access to metadata in svn.

    * no releases.
