This is much more DevOps than Dev, but it is important as well ! One difficulty we have doing remote development with a team spread over at least a million cities (I haven't actually counted) is that the local development LAN for Bob is frankly inaccessible for Alice and Charlie. Maintaining n-1 VPN links is just going to drive us all mad.
So - a server forces a rebuild, on successful rebuild, the server calls home, and then the "real" jenkins job can be triggered using the Jenkins API calls.
Amazingly enough it works, has trivial security, no REST compliance but it works
