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.


Gump on vmgump now runs on Oracle Java7 since more an more projects depend on it. As a result other projects - most notably those who implement JDBC interfaces - have been broken.

The dataset of projects built by Gump is maintained by 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.

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.


As of Mon, 10 Sep 2012 the ASF installations check out a bit more than 175 source trees (115 from the ASF repository) and try to build a bit more than 850 "projects". A complete Gump run takes about eight and a half hours on vmgump and about ten on the FreeBSD jail and eight on Adam where more projects fail to build.
