One of the new efforts in Jenkins this year is the acceptance test harness for Jenkins.
We will be doing the Jenkins office hours next week to go over this and sync up and coordinate between people in the community that are trying to work on this.
It'll be April 23rd 11am PT (see what this time is in your time zone) on Google Hangout at http://jenkins-ci.org/hangout. If you are intereste in hacking Jenkins or if you are a large user of Jenkins who have acceptance tests, we are looking forward to seeing you there.
For those of you who haven't looked, this test harness allows you to write blackbox tests of Jenkins and its plugins. It was originally used to test LTS releases, but over the time, it acquired a number of features, such as ...:
- Docker support for launching complex fixtures to test Jenkins with.
- Pluggability to launch Jenkins under test (JUT) in many different environments
