Subject Gump Board Report Q3 2011
Date Sun, 18 Sep 2011 04:58:04 GMT
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 ==

No development activity at all, 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.

The past quarter several projects built by Gump have been moved to the
Attic and now are no longer built by Gump, the only notable addition
is the Tomcat 7 branch.

== Development ==


== 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 ==

No new is good news.

== Project Branding Requirements ==

We believe to meet all requirements by now.

== Statistics ==

As of Sat, 17 Sep 2011 the ASF installations check out a bit more than
170 source trees (114 from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit
less than 800 "projects".  A complete Gump run takes about eight hours
on vmgump.  Timings for the FreeBSD jail and the MacOS X server are
currently not available as either build is having issues.

Some builds have been removed since the projects moved to the Attic
(Cactus, for example).
