Subject [REPORT] Apache Gump Q2 2014
Date Wed, 11 Jun 2014 04:00:06 GMT
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 ==

Gump seems to create useful results for the few projects that use it.
Ant decided to switch from svn to git which might require some real
coding work to be done.

== Releases ==

Gump has never done any releases.  One reason for this is that the ASF
installations of Gump work on the latest code base almost all of the
time following its "integrate everything continuously" philosophy.

== Activity ==

Ant migrated most of its codebases from svn to git.  When Gump
switched to use the git location we had to learn the ASF's https git
service was not compatible with git 1.7.x which still is the latest
version available as package for Ubuntu 10.04 (which powers vmgump).
A self-compiled git 2.0 on vmgump solved the problem.

While Gump caught up with the change for Ant itself, the Antlib and
Ivy builds are still using the stale svn uris.  The Ant project is
currently pondering the idea of using git submodules for the Antlibs
projects, these are not supported by Gump, yet, which may require some
changes in the git integration.

== 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
