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

No changes compared to the last quarter, no real activity by the community. After a hiccup in September 2017 the service seems to be good again. We'll ask our users whether they still need Gump in the next quarter.

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

This has again been a very quiet quarter for Gump.

Around the time of the last report we realized the runs in vmgump had stopped for several weeks without anybody taking notice. This somewhat challenges the notion that "Gump seems to remain useful for the projects using it" usually stated here. By now the runs have been stable again and are watched more closely.

In 2013 we asked the projects Gump was building back then whether they still want to use the service. Stefan intends to do so once again during the next quarter.

Changes to the Roster

All ASF committers have write access to the metadata that configure the ASF installations.

The last changes to the PMC have seen Konstantin Kolinko and Mark Thomas join in November 2014.
