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.

Summary

Gump has learned to use msbuild/xbuild and NuGet to build .NET projects.

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

Releases

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.

Activity

One of the projects (XMLUnit.NET) built by Gump recently switched to msbuild/xbuild as its build tool so we had to catch up. This also required us to support nuget's command line as a build step. Currently the support just provides what the project asks for - which is not the way Gump would be expected to work. Given the only project using it doesn't have any dependency on any other project built by Gump it is unlikely we'll make the implementation more "Gumpy". With the move of XMLUnit.NET there no longer is any project using Nant as a built tool left in the set of projects built by Gump.

As more long running test projects have been added, we needed to change vmgump's configuration back to perform four runs a day rather than three. A single run of Gump currently takes about eight and a half hours. So the setting of "three" in fact meant that we would only manage two per day.
