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 ==
Low development activity to adapt to a difference between mvn 2.x and
3.x, the Mac OS X machine went live, 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 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.
Support requests for the non-public Gump installation running on top
of OpenJDK7 dribble in and get addressed.
== Development ==
Only minor changes that lead to separate "install" builders for mvn2
== 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 ==
The Mac OS X instance called Adam is now running the full set of
The infra team has provided us with a VM to run Gump on top of Apache
Harmony but it is currently not used. We expect to either start using
it or give it back during the next quarter.
== Project Branding Requirements ==
Logos still need a "TM" symbol, waiting for somebody with the skills
required to make the change. Unfortunately the Gump community doesn't
seem to include a person with said skills.
The website now uses Forrest 0.9 which allowed us to remove our own
custom skin that was only added in order to enable the trademark
== Statistics ==
As of Thu, 10 Mar 2011 the ASF installations check out a bit less than
180 source trees (113 from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit
less than 800 "projects". A complete Gump run takes about nine hours
on vmgump or the FreeBSD jail and a bit less than seven hours on the
MacOS X server where more projects fail to build and thus less time is
spent building dependent projects.
The time taken on vmgump has almost halfed when compared to last
quarter mostly due to migrating to a new virtual host; it is now back
where it used to be half a year ago. The time for the FreeBSD jail
remains more or less the same.
