It soothed this raging roomful of wannabe lawyers anyway. Who, Me? The oversized rear of Monday is obstructing our view of the receding weekend. Never mind, pour yourself a beverage, select a pastry and settle in for a morning with the Regomiser and another edition of Who, Me?…

[$] The second half of the 5.13 merge window

By the time the last pull request was acted on and 5.13-rc1
was released, a total of 14,231 non-merge commits had found their way into
the mainline. That makes the 5.13 merge window larger than the entire 5.12
development cycle (13,015 commits) and just short of all of 5.11 (14,340).
In other words, 5.13 looks like one of the busier development cycles we
have seen for a little while.
About 6,400 of these commits came in after the
first-half summary
was written, and they include a number of
significant new features.

Jenkins is a free and open source automation server for building, testing, and deploying code. It[he]#039[/he]s the backbone of continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) and can save developers hours each day and protect them from having failed code go live. When code does fail, or when a developer needs to see the output of tests, Jenkins provides log files for review.
