We use it too:


It's extremely easy to set up, you just get Jenkins to issue all of
the shell commands you need to issue to build the project. For an
example, see the console output from our last snap-server build:

Particular tips from our configuration:

  * Jenkins is a Java project, and hence gobbles RAM. My VPS couldn't
handle it, so I run it over a VPN tunnel to a machine sitting in my
living room.

  * If you set up test-framework to run your tests, you can get it to
spit out junit XML which Jenkins understands

  * Get Jenkins to wrap up your haddocks and HPC test coverage
reports, it's really useful.
