Advantages of Jenkins over Buildbot

Jenkins and Buildbot are both continuous-integration servers. WebKit currently uses Buildbot at http://build.webkit.org/. This page lists some advantages switching to Jenkins would bring.

Annotating build failures

As described in bug 59527, we'd like to be able to annotate build failures to show whether someone is working on them. Jenkins's Claim plugin would let us do just that.

Build times

Jenkins has built-in support for tracking the length of the build over time and graphing it.

Code coverage statistics

Jenkins's Cobertura plugin combined with coverage.py would allow us to track code coverage statistics for our Python unit tests.
