D'oh ... missed that in the announcement... thanks for the clarification.

While the two CI systems don't know of each other, you can actually get
notified when a commit status update occurs. That would require some
service to listen on those status updates and logic to determine if all
builders passed (which is moot if you have testers not running on travis
or appveyor). So I guess a cron job is the only alternative for the lack
of proper CI support on this.
