Components in trunk are now spinning against the updated TPs.
Note that after the Jenkins server restart this morning at 7am GMT, some
of my ant scripts were no longer working. I've fixed the biggest issue
which was causing numerous builds to fail during their publishing step
(Ant was not respecting the classpath declaration of an XSLT operation,
so couldn't use Saxon for the transformation), but I'm seeing more test
failures than before which suggests there may be other issues to come.
One of the perks of the restart, however, was that we now have
additional columns in the job view for upstream and downstream
Anyway, here's to clean spins over the weekend and good trunk bits for
testing on Monday.
Have a good weekend everyone -- and if you're AFK between now and New
Years, happy holidays too!
(I'll be offline Dec 26 - Jan 6 but will be around to check mail from
time to time.)

New trunk target platforms are under way:
With any luck they'll both complete successfully in an hour or so, then
kick off the downstream component jobs which will also run successfully.
That said, expect some breakage as the trickledown happens. If you see
your component's job has died, see if its upstream jobs were successful
and if so, respin yours. If upstream died, feel free to respin the
As always, the trunk jobs can be seen here:
