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.


No Board level issues.


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.


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

We encountered only a few minor hickups after the upgrade to FreeBSD 9.0, mostly due to upgrading svn and having to upgrade all working copies. Many thanks to the infra team.


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.


As of Tue, 13 Mar 2012 the ASF installations check out a bit less than 180 source trees (115 from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit more than 850 "projects". A complete Gump run takes about nine and a half hours on vmgump and about nine on the FreeBSD jail and ten on Adam where more projects fail to build.
