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 has learned to use Gradle to build projects.

Gump seems to create useful results for the few projects that use it.


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.


One of the projects (Hamcrest) built by Gump recently switched to Gradle as its build tool so we had to catch up. After figuring out a way to integrate Gradle, we realized the new Hamcrest version wasn't compatible with the old one (it's a new major release, so that's to be expected) and we had to provide a packaged up version of Hamcrest 1.3 anyway. This means the only gradle build we've got doesn't do much more than validating Hamcrest can be built.

This quarter was the first time a project tried the support for different git branches that has been present for some time.

As more long running test projects have been added we needed to change vmgump's configuration to perform three runs a day rather than four.
