Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Travis CI and Eclipse Projects build

Hi Alberto,

As perhaps mentioned, I can see two options:

1. We use a specific GH Organization for your project (eclipse-kapua would be the name). That would give you all 5 Travis executors.

2. Use our CBI (Jenkins) which gives you 2 dedicated executors.

You can file a bug against Eclipse Foundation > Community > Github for 1. and Eclipse Foundation > Community > CI-Jenkins for 2.

You can also subscribe to the CBI-dev mailing list ( for build-specific discussions.

Hi all, 


I’m a committer of the Eclipse Kapua project.


We use Travis CI as a continuous integration tool for branches and pull requests alongside Eclipse Jenkins.


In the last few months (and especially in the last few weeks) we noticed an increased time that it takes to actually start a build. Now we are at the point in which it take 2-3 hours to start a build after being enqueued. 

To try to troubleshooting the problem, we reached Travis CI support.

After a couple of mail exchange the problem came out.

It turns out that Travis CI is free for opensource projects but allows only 5 jobs to run concurrently per each organization. This means that all Eclipse projects that are using Travis CI share this limit of 5 concurrent jobs, explaining the long time waiting an available executor. 


Support also reported that on 2018-08-28 09:32:45 UTC there were 226 jobs waiting enqueued for Eclipse organization.


Is there any plan on the Eclipse side to get around this problem?

Do we need to find other solutions? Eclipse Jenkins could be one, but it allows only 2 concurrent jobs.
