I'm not trying to imply or state that this is something that must be used
It's been tremendously helpful and is being used on 20+ boost repositories
Therefore I think it should be pulled into boostorg as the "owner".
Apart from that:
What would AppVeyor provide that Travis does not, other than the timeout
I agree, I've seen what you are talking about with the timeouts. I would
say any build that takes
over 50 minutes is too long and should be broken up or optimized or
simplified somehow anyway.
Also, AppVeyor has some deficiencies:
- In AppVeyor I get one concurrent job. In Travis I get 5.
- In AppVeyor I cannot restart an individual job that is part of a suite
of builds in a PR. In Travis I can.
