Nightly builds moved to Jenkins (Hudson)

Hi everyone

I got tired of managing our BuildBot(s), so I decided to switch our continuous integration tool to Jenkins (formerly known as Hudson). You find our Jenkins at

The main benefits are: * An order of magnitude easier to configure and maintain. All configuration happens through the web interface. * Has its own account and login system, no need for accounts on the host machine.
* One Jenkins for all our projects vs one buildbot per project * Mails with last build log lines and list of changes since last build works out of the box. That is quite a bit of work to get working with buildbot, so much that I gave up on it. In a few days I will make failures be posted to gimp-developer, I think that is good to do if the mails contains logs and list of changes.

The nightly tarballs can now be reached both through HTTP and FTP with permanent URLs:




To simplify configuration, I wrote a simple 'GNOME Project Builder' Jenkins plug-in that can be found here:
