I started with defining the Jenkins jobs as part of the source via the
Jenkins Job DSL plugin. This is a very nice way to better control the
Jenkins jobs as well as let's us re-use things across multiple jobs. Until
now we often had to manually adjust every job for something, e.g. the list
of "usable" slaves. Now you can describe the Jenkins Setup in a nice
groovy-based language.

See http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/poi/trunk/jenkins for the script and
https://github.com/jenkinsci/job-dsl-plugin/wiki for documentation of the

For now I just added one test-job, but I would like to replace all current
Jenkins jobs with generated ones, just keeping the "seed" job manually set
up (but rarely changed at all!)
