Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20120321" by StefanBodewig
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 16:00:38 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20120321" page has been changed by StefanBodewig:

New page:
Apache Gump is a cross-project continuous integration server.  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 Board level issues.

== 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 site now uses svnpubsub.  If we ever want to create a release, we'll use svnpubsub right
from the start.

== Activity ==

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.  During this quarter we've tweaked git support to allow pulling from branches other
than "master".

There are only a few people contributing across all projects and a few additional people maintaining
the metadata of the projects they are interested in the most.

We've finally given up waiting for expat to build on libtool2 systems and now provide a system
installed expat, this means we've started to sucessfully build APR and projects depending
on APR for the first time since at least a year, probably longer.

== Changes to the Roster ==

All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure the ASF installations.

No new committers to the code base, no changes to the PMC.

== Branding and Naming ==

We believe to meet all branding requirements.

== Statistics ==

As of Thu, 1 Dec 2011 the ASF installations check out a bit more than 180 source trees (114
from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit less than 850 "projects".  A complete Gump
run takes about ten hours on vmgump and about eight and a half on the FreeBSD jail and nine
on Adam where more projects fail to build.
