Indeed.  I would love to have a gitlab CE driven (so free software, so
we actually use it) implementation of gitlab CI, running on our
allocation of cloud credit with Rackspace.

I've wanted to do this for ages, but have made no progress, but it
someone could find the time to build and maintain this, we could help
get past this silly situation where we all pass around patches that
fail autobuilds.  Ideally by the time another developer looks at the
patch the failure would be indicated, and we can all avoid wasting

We could even include multiple target platforms.

I'm really glad to get this moving.  Not much further now!
