Re: [incubation] [cross-project-issues-dev] Travis CI and Eclipse Projects build
I would not bet on the foundation staff spending a lot of time on Travis CI, as the Eclipse Foundation are investing quite a bit into CloudBees CJE (Enterprise grade Jenkins). I would try to get the most out of the latter.
Build servers are a limited resource, also at Eclipse, but I believe there are plans to offer different configurations if two concurrent builds are not enough.
See Mikaël Barbero's blog post and the migration FAQ for some more information.

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.
