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 ASF as well
as non-ASF projects and their dependencies.  It started in the Java
part of the foundation but also builds projects like APR, HTTPd and

== Summary ==

The set of projects has been stripped down to those who actively
expressed interest in the service, we seem to be able to handle the
reduced set well.

== 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.

== Activity ==

In late June we sent an email to the dev lists of all ASF projects
that were built by Gump asking the communities whether they'd still be
interested in the service.  Of all communities only the Tomcat, POI,
XML Graphics and Forrest dev teams asked to continue the Gump builds,
log4net asked to drop the builds and the rest ignored the mail and was
deemed not interested.

Since mid-August Gump only builds the projects who signalled interest
as well as their dependencies, nag mails have been turned off for all
projects who don't want them.  One result was immediate interest by
the Tomcat and FOP communities to get their builds green again.

== Infrastructure ==

We've given back our FreeBSD jail and now concentrate on a single
installation on vmgump.

== 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.  The most
recent addition to the PMC was in December 2006 when we added Sander

== Statistics ==

vmgump runs about 130 build jobs for 50 source trees, 32 from ASF
repositories.  A complete builds takes about two-and-half hour by now.
