No, you are correct. Jenkins got a slightly higher score than Murdock, but the
scoring system is not really balanced and the difference is only ~5% and hence
negligible.

No worries, actually, I appreciate your inquiry. Indeed the conclusion was
that both CI systems are well suited for our needs. Jenkins may be a bit
stronger in some aspects while Murdock 2 scores in other aspects. Finally, we
wanted to come up with a concrete proposal and decided to recommend Murdock 2
for a rather indirect argument: whatever CI is chosen, we can never be certain
that we're gonna to be happy with that decision forever (as the past has
shown). However, if we now decide for Jenkins it is very likely that the
development of Murdock 2 will stop and we can never go back - while the other
way should be always possible.

I hope that answers your question(s). Otherwise, please let me know and I will
happily try to explain it better.

Cheers,
Oleg
