Travis-CI.com recently announced a new pricing model on Nov. 2, which affects public open source projects: https://blog.travis-ci.com/2020-11-02-travis-ci-new-billing
While its a bit unclear if Travis CI repos under travis-ci.com/github/apache is affected by this, this will definitely affect contributors who fork our repositories and enable Travis CI on their fork for development purposes.
Github Actions seems to be a popular alternative nowadays:
- No limited test time with its hosted builders, if repo is public
- Activation is automatic - one step / click less for contributors to get CI running for their forks
Given that the CI workflows in flink-statefun is very minimal right now, we propose to make the switch to Github Actions as the efforts to do that should be relatively trivial.
