Updated usage statistics are now available at http://jenkins-ci.org/census This data has been scrubbed of distinguishing information as much as possible, filtered for installations we've seen at least twice a month with at least one job set up, and split up into monthly JSON files. Starting with August, we only have data on installations of version 1.368 or later - before that, reports go to the old Oracle-owned server, and we aren't able to retrieve them. So that's why you'll see a fairly hefty drop in install count, etc from July to August.
I haven't had a chance to do any analysis to speak of on the data. I intend to get the plugin usage spreadsheet updated n the next few days, but I wanted to make this data available to you all ASAP. If you come up with any interesting analysis or use of the data, please let us know!
As mentioned on Friday the Jenkins project held it's first meeting on the IRC channel at the request of the interim board. In the interest of transparency, we recorded meeting minutes and tried to involve as many folks as possible.
- Proposal/Discussion of Jenkins project governance structure
- What to do about the logo
- Registering the Jenkins trademark
- Moving Jenkins under an umbrella organization
- What shall we do with a new CLA?
- Logistics for the next project meeting
If you're interested, you can read through the full logs or just look over the high-level meeting minutes.
This first meeting went a bit long due to the massive amount of items needing to be discussed, so the project has scheduled another meeting for Wednesday Feb 9, 11am PST (19:00 UTC); mark your calendars!
Thanks to everybody who participated, we'll see you again next time.
Amongst all the work this week with setting up project infrastructure, the first release of Jenkins and a flood of developer activity on GitHub, the interim governance board has decided to hold periodic virtual meetings.
The first meeting will be held today at 3pm PST (23:00 UTC) in the
#jenkins channel on IRC (more details here).
In Kohsuke's post to the mailing list, he further explained the goals of such meetings:
We can use it to report/discuss various issues of the project (not bugs in code, but more project level stuff.) I also plan to report the infrastructure work that's done thus far.
We'd like to hear from you, and the point is to engage the broader community, so please join us.
This is a new thing, so it's not like we've figured this all out, but let's see how it goes.
If you don't have an IRC client, you can use the Freenode webchat client to join in, hope to see you there!
(This was sent as an email to the Hudson dev and users mailing lists after voting concluded, but I thought it'd be good to post it here as well.)
The vote is closed, and the results are in. More than half of the total votes were from ineligible voters, but the result would have been the same either way. The final result of all eligible votes is as follows: 214 votes to rename, and 14 for the status quo. You can see the individual votes hudson-jenkins-vote.
