I agree Jenkins isn't the easiest to automate but surely the fact that it's all XML files makes it easier than a database -- using config management you can install Jenkins and template out the necessary configuration file(s). I much prefer systems that use files instead of the db for configuration...

Configs should be in config files, state in a database. They are coupled in Jenkins and both are on the filesystem, mainly in XML files that are undocumented. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that.

Ah, I see. Yeah, agreed on that one too then.
