Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20110921" by StefanBodewig
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2011 12:03:44 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Gump Wiki" for change notification.

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20110921" page has been changed by StefanBodewig:

New page:
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 ==

No development activity at all, 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[1]
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.

The past quarter several projects built by Gump have been moved to the Attic and now are no
longer built by Gump, the only notable addition is the Tomcat 7 branch.

== Development ==


== 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 ==

No new is good news.

== Project Branding Requirements ==

We believe to meet all requirements by now.

== Statistics ==

As of Fri, 10 Jun 2011 the ASF installations check out a bit less than 180 source trees (115
from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit less than 800 "projects".  A complete Gump
run takes about seven and a half hours on vmgump or the FreeBSD jail about six and a half
hours on the MacOS X server where more projects fail to build and thus less time is spent
building dependent projects.

Some builds have been removed since the projects moved to the Attic (regexp, for example)
or were unmaintained and always failed to build anyway.
