What's important for continuous integration...

What's important for continuous integration...
review of "Modeling Continuous Integration Practice Differences in Industry Software Development", http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jss.2013.08.032

I've got this article on ScienceDirect alerts and was a bit skeptical to the method - literature review - but when I read the paper it turned out to be great stuff.

The authors look at what is important in continuous integration - see top 3:
- build duration
- build frequency
- build triggering

and they also looked at  the meaning of common phrases - e.g. what is a failure or success of continuous integration. Turns out not that simple...

Generally very interesting article with a lot of insights.
