Re: Hudson restart requested to install new plugins (was Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [galileo] FYI - Updated build with STP bits)

Hi all,

I'm quite glad to see that Hudson is available for all projects! I've spent a little time trying to get it working for the Java Workflow Tooling project, and I have a few questions.

I'm wondering how to handle signing and permissions issues with Hudson builds. Indeed, builds started from Hudson are processed by a "hudsonbuild" user on However, this user is not allowed to sign jars, and has very basic permissions. This makes Hudson build unable to process the full chain (pde build + testing + signing + update site + p2). The signing tasks is the one that is currently blocking, once permissions have been set to "rwx" for everybody.

I understand that it would not be safe to give to "hudsonbuild" the right to sign jars. Thus, does any of you have an idea of a workaround I could use? I think a solution would be to get build started by another user than hudsonbuild, but I don't think that it can be done respectfully of security concerns...

Any suggestion is welcome!

Thanks in advance
Mickael Istria, for JWT project

Just a FYI, the bugzilla plugin requires XMLRPC to be configured on the bugzilla server.

I don't think this is currently enabled  on

Hudson restart requested to install new plugins (was Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [galileo] FYI - Updated build with STP bits)


Woo! Thanks for posting that this is possible. Last I heard the Hudson
setup was only for Galileo, but not I see that's not the case.

I've managed to get GEF to build there using the Athena CBI builder.

I've also installed a bunch of plugins and upped the number of available
executors from 2 to 4 (it's a 4-CPU server, right?).

Some useful plugins include:

* Audit Trail, Disk Usage (to track who's doing what)
* Bugzilla (hopefully to integrate CVS changes w/ related bug numbers)
* Build-timeout (to kill long-running / stuck builds)
* CVS Tagging (for use with Modeling builds
* Description Setter, Text-finder (to label build status)
* SCP, Promoted Builds, Release (to control how builds are published)
* XVnc (for running headless UI tests)
* Jabber, IRC, Twitter (notifications)
* Emma (code coverage)
* SSH Slaves (to control slaves via SSH, eg., to perhaps use vservers as
 slaves as usage grows)


when is a good time to restart Hudson so that we can start using these
wonderful new plugins?
