User ability to request a build from Jenkins
I still haven't persuaded cygwin to link correctly. Something horribly wrong. I've realised that the buildserver sshd is 32 bit and therefore builds a 32 bit library. I might attempt the configure sshd to run cygwin64, however it took a lot of effort to get everything to build over sshd, I'm reluctant to modify anything about sshd. I'll feel differently when I work on this tomorrow.

I've made a good start on this and designed the UI. I've also made strong progress with #1041 (CMake/Visual Studio). I now have a script to rebuild/test exiv2 with visual studio 2005/8/10/12/13/15) in x86 and x64. This script delivers to a 'dlist' directory with all 12 builds. I'm thinking that I can use this to deliver a 'daily' and 'monthly' build of exiv2 and that might be sufficient for the purpose. I'm setting Done to 20 to reflect this progress.

I'm going to advance this to 80% complete. The work on #1041 has taken up a lot of time (about 4 weeks). However, it's much more extensive than I anticipated. I've added a daily/weekly/monthly build to jenkins and publish the builds for user collection.
Perhaps in v0.27, I will continue to develop the UI to enable a user to precisely define the build required. However for v0.26, the work done in #1041 is a significant new service for users. The work complete does enable a user to 'request a build from jenkins'.
I'm also going to increase the estimate hours to 100. #1041 is already 100 hours. So, with both set at 100 hours and 80% complete, that does respect the 160 hours (4 weeks) that I have invested in this matter. I'm also changing the target to 0.26.

I had a quite a lot of trouble getting all 12 MSVC builds to execute with CMake and to pass the daily_test.sh. It's been stable now for two weeks. I think CMake/Visual Studio is more-or-less complete. This has been a lot of work, however it is one of the major new features of the v0.26 release.

In response to a discussion with Saiteja Tallam on the Forum concerning Qt/MinGW/32, I've extended the nightly build to publish those builds.
This was quite difficult for a couple of reasons:
1) It was a fight to get cmake built for MinGW/32
Although I get cmake built, it generates makefiles that fail to build the code.
I've documented the status in contrib/buildserver/cmake_daily.sh
2) I "switched horses" and perform the nightly build for MinGW using autotools
This has taken quite a serious effort to debug as the rest of the nightly build uses CMake.
Creating and testing the dist bundle is tough challenge as the build time is about 90 minutes.
The effort to perform a nightly build with autotools could be very useful in future and could be quickly used to build and test 32 bit Linux or Cygwin libraries. Or static libraries. Or special builds such as web-ready. Of course these builds could be performed with CMake. However, MinGW builds will have to be performed with Autotools until more work is undertaken to get cmake to work with MinGW.
