Subject builds.apache.org Jenkins status as of end of day May 27
Date Tue, 27 May 2014 22:41:18 GMT
So here's where we are right now:

- Jenkins has been downgraded to 1.554.1, the latest LTS release.
- There's a minor patch on top of it to band-aid away an annoying
Jenkins bug that only really occurs at scale, particularly with
MavenModuleSet projects - see
https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-22822 - I basically made
it stop trying to estimate duration time. Once there's a resolution to
JENKINS-22822, we'll turn that back on.
- It's no longer possible to create a MavenModuleSet job from scratch
- I disabled this due to the huge pains we've had that are caused by
various flaws/oversights in the MavenModuleSet project type's
architecture. I'm working on tooling to help migrate most
MavenModuleSet jobs to freestyle jobs, but even avoiding the hard
cases, it ain't easy.
- Git polling was busted for most projects due to the newer version of
the git plugin defaulting to polling on the master with git+ls-remote
and that needing certain directories writeable - that should be fixed
now. See INFRA-7810.

As of right now, the UI is loading alright, polling is working, and
builds are running. We've got a nice backlog of builds in queue, no
less. Assuming it doesn't barf too much over the next day, I'm going
to switch my focus to adding support for dynamically provisioned
slaves on Rackspace, based on demand - that'll be a while out until
it's available, but I've put a higher priority on just getting Jenkins
itself to not die horribly on a regular basis than on improving
capacity so far. =)
