    Not sure what Jenkins you found, but there is a jar there. https://ci.craftyn.com/job/Jail/ Do be warned, that is a beta build and hasn't been tested throughly so I would recommend using it with precaution and report any issues to GitHub.

    I found it on jekins but there's no .jar file, it has to be compiled and I don't know how to do that. Sooooo

    I wouldn't mind testing it. I was also wondering if there was a way to jail multiple people to one cell, or maybe to one jail without cells. I want to turn my old server map into a role playing map where everyone who logs in gets jailed by a command block, but I need them to all go to the same place without cells filling up.

    It is ready, just waiting for more people to test and verify it works. It is on the Jenkins server.

    I don't mean to be pushy, but you said a week about a month ago. I'm getting antsy! This is my favorite plugin. Is there a more accurate ETA you can give us?
