I got the feeling Travis was on it's way out - maybe I'll dig into Azure
Pipelines to see what can be done with them, I've been meaning to anyway
for myself.

Using our own buildbot servers would be pretty cool, where are they hosted?
And they go pretty far back, don't they.

I've been taking a lot of notes as I learn, at some point, I want to turn
it into docs - but right now it's an unorganized mess of random trivia.
