Extra info and code examples

Jenkins is the market leading continuous integration system, originally created by Kohsuke Kawaguchi. This API makes Jenkins even easier to use by providing an easy to use conventional Python interface. Jenkins (and its predecessor Hudson) are useful projects for automating common development tasks (e.g., unit-testing, production batches) - but they are somewhat Java-centric. Thankfully the designers have provided an excellent and complete REST interface. This library wraps up that interface as more conventional Python objects in order to make most Jenkins-oriented tasks simpler.
