This project contains the source code of the "Inheritance Plugin" for Jenkins.
The source code is released under the LGPL v3. You can find the full licence text in the LICENCE file.
The purpose of this plugin is to bring true inheritance of properties between multiple job definitions to Jenkins. This allows you to define common properties only once and inherit them to multiple projects. Ideal candidates for this are, for example, the SCM setup, common pre-build and post-build steps as well as cleanup and logging properties.
It also offers a simple versioning system, allowing you to easily go back to a past version of any job configuration and test new features without affecting the runtime.
