Jenkins builds supports mcf-ant and mcf-mvn today. mcf-ant includes tests but mcf-mvn does not include test:
It would be nice we could run "mvn install" rather than that.
Some Apache projects are using travis ci via Github(1), just putting .travis.yml to project root directory.
And these tests are not limited timeout as to a build(2).
I tried to test mcf trunk using travis.yml on my repo, then tests work well. Please see attached image.
We can watch the testing result at https://travis-ci.org/apache/manifoldcf (public) after committing. And we can add the status badge to somewhere such as README.
