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 OpenSSL.


In essence, nothing has changed over the past three months and we honestly do not anticipate changes in the foreseeable future.

The Tomcat community is the only one still using Gump actively and the only activity in Gump is around keeping the infrastructure alive and tweaking things for the benefit of Tomcat builds.

We will certainly support any other project that wants to get the benefit of the early warning system for backwards incompatible changes Gump provides, but we are not actively recruiting projects.

We've been scheduled to move the vmgump instance over to a bigger machine soonish.


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.

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.

Brett Porter has left the PMC in December 2019.
