Stefan's upgrade of Jenkins has taken place. There were some minor
behaviour changes, and we've had to adapt how we pass the refspec for the
version of the patch to actually test from the workflow job to the matrix
job. That's now live, but until further notice that we think it's working
reliably, please don't merge changes unless you've observed that e.g. the
Jenkins console log reports that it checked out the commit that it should
have tested.

> Hi devs,
> For GROMACS 2017, at http://redmine.gromacs.org/issues/2012 we've
> discussed updating some of the minimum requirements for building GROMACS
> (details there, TL/DR we will adopt cmake 3.4.3, and (at least for now) gcc
> 4.8.1 and CUDA 6.5). That should reduce development and maintenance
> friction quite a bit, get rid of some hacky work-arounds, and we anyway
> want users to use recent compilers for faster simulations.
> Stefan will also plan and execute an upgrade of Jenkins to
> https://jenkins.io/2.0/ which transforms pipelines into a first-class
> entity, which looks like a great fit for how things have been evolving.
> (Obviously we'll have backups and then check all the old plugins still work
> like they promise they will, etc.) He'll let you know when to expect any
> downtime/issues.
> Cheers,
> Mark
