I assigned you the role "maintainer" meaning you can do pretty much anything
You are very welcome to help join the testing effort! I am alone at the moment. Now that
we've released 0.91, I hope more people join.
There is no documentation on the job structure. My thinking was to have these jobs in
1. bzr update and make (using clang-scanbuild)
2. unittests (only if job 1 succeeded)
3. rendertests (only if job 2 succeeds)
4. doxygen (only if job 1? succeeds) and publish the HTML if successful
1 issue that needs be solved:
- the bzr updating mechanism (it seems a bit weird the way jenkins plugin tries to update
the workspace) sometimes breaks, complaining that bzr is not stable and may have crashed.
Then, the workspace is emptied and the build fails. This then looks like a failed
"make". If this happens, we have to simply restart the job; unfortunately i have
not figured out a way to have jenkins do that itself, and not complain about the failed
bzr-update with an email...
So I think we should split job 1 into an update job and a make job.
Just now we had a unittest failure for 0.91.x because the workspace is empty. I do not
know how this happened. :( Simply had to restart the full job chain. Don't know the
cause for this problem.

Thanks for the clarification, I signed up there as well.
After browsing through the different build jobs I see that they are
run in order so only one or two are initiated by SCM update...and if
it is successfull it will start some other jobs. Do we have a wiki
page where the thoughtprocess and structure of this is documented?
I've found the jenkins set up process on the wiki but no details on
the "job structure". What is the goal of each job? (for those familiar
with CI it's pretty clear from the name of it but for new developers
it could be helpful).
