Subject Re: volunteering for ASF Jenkins farm service maintenance

Hello all

An other aspect which may be worth to explore for reducing resource
consumption is the way we use or configure Maven. A few weeks ago,
executing "mvn clean install deploy site" on Apache SIS with Maven 3.1
apparently trigged compilation of all source code 18 times. It may not
be Maven fault - I suspect some interactions between plugins, not all of
them developed at Apache. The situation seems to improve with Maven 3.2
(still need to confirm).
