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

Even if jenkins does not offer unlimited scalability too, it still offer 2 concurrent jobs per eclipse project.
This is better than 5 for the whole eclipse organisation (560 repositories registered, I don't know exatly how much project that represents...)

I'm moving this discussion to (incubation@xxxxxxxxxxx). Cross-project is intended for different kind of discussions.

AFAIK Webmaster are experimenting with different/dedicated GitHub organisations per (top-level) project. Maybe that's something for you. Another possibility is finding a sponsor for your project's own paid Travis CI subscription. Jenkins would also work but also does not offer unlimited scalability.

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.
