Hi,

I know about build.gimp.org.

I just wanted to raise this question to the attention of the team - of
whether there is a need to support own CI if security is not an
issue.It is literally only reason people do that now when we have
travis-ci.org/https://circleci.com/etc.Travis is even free for
opensource projects.

https://build.gimp.org/plugin/disk-usage/ looks pretty full to me, for
example. External CI do not have problems with that.

We know of the disk usage issue:
https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=776631
That's one of the many issues which triggered us into either looking
for alternative solutions or collaboration or whatever you want.
Basically we want something which works, is useful and reliable. The
"need" stops there.

After, which software is it using? I think we don't really care. Now
obviously we'd prefer our whole infrastructure to run on Free
Software. And personally I like self-hosting for full control. But
then there is reality check: it requires contributor time and
administration skills. So in the end, the CI contributor(s) choose. In
the GIMP team, our policy is more or less that the one who *do* are
the one who are in charge of what they do.

Since I don't appear to be seen as a contributor or "doer" I'm happy to
just step down completely and remove myself from the project.  Much as I
like GIMP I don't really like the tone of the thread.

I am not a developer, but I think that there's not any particular "tone"
involved here. Many free/open source project are governed by such "do-ocrazy"

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=do-ocracy

it is just the way it is because of low number of hands involved...
You don't like it? Just do more and talk less and you will find yourself
in charge...
