Subject [Gump Wiki] Update of "Drafts/BoardReports/20110316" by StefanBodewig

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Drafts/BoardReports/20110316" page has been changed by StefanBodewig.

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[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.

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 and mvn3.

== 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 projects.

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.

== Statistics ==

As of Wed, 8 Dec 2010 the ASF installations check out a bit less than 190 source trees (119
from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit more than 700 "projects".  A complete Gump
run takes more than sixteen hours on vmgump and seven and a half on the FreeBSD jail.

The time taken on vmgump has almost doubled when compared to last quarter while it remains
more or less constant on the FreeBSD jail.  Given that we don't have significantly more failures
on FreeBSD the difference is likely related to other things that happen in parallel on the
machines hosting the VM/jail.
