Whiteboard

Jenkins works just fine on both ARM and x86 platforms

Thanks to Xerxes Ranby and Kohuske Kawaguchi to identifying the issue with JamVM on ARM and resolving so quickly.

UDS Session Notes

Discussion:
  - Approach to plugins;
    - packaging recipe?
        Documentation to be polished
    - disable Jenkins upstream plugin manager?
        Not by default but ensure can be disabled and that this is documented well.
    - build from source?
        where possible - look at most popular plugins and assess top 5.

  - Delivery approach:
    - Debian or Ubuntu first?
        Ubuntu then Debian - will get better testing coverage if it hits Oneiric earlier.
    - Sponsorship burden - large number of packages.
        Target universe, spread the burden as wide as possible in Ubuntu.

  - Jenkins Nuances:
     - Package variants - OK
     - Hudson polutiom - OK

Target 1.400.1 when delivered by upstream.
