Travis CI has a 40min time limit, per task.  That was the motivation

With the .travis.yml in the git repo, when you raise a pull request, it
is compiled and tested via travis.  Currently the main test doesn't run
(not even a quicktest, as even that isn't quick)

You can also test your own trees, if you register your github repo with
