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 XMLUnit.NET.


Gump seems to create useful results for the few projects that use it. This quarter showed more activity than usual with Gump learning to deal with git submodules and vmgump being upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04.


Gump has never done any releases. One reason for this is that the ASF installations of Gump work on the latest code base almost all of the time following its "integrate everything continuously" philosophy.


With Ant and the Antlibs migrated to git and the Antlibs using git submodules it was necessary to add support for transparent handling of git submodules, this has been implemented in July and seems to work well enough.

Mark Thomas was kind enough to upgrade vmgump from Ubuntu 10.04 to 14.04 which freed us from the need of a hand compiled git and provided us with a few more recent compilers and libraries. Mark has been added to the list of sudoers on vmgump.

vmgump's httpd has been added to the lists of services monitored by infra "the pubsubified way".

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 Temme.
