In this specific case I suppose they are using IBM-donated computing power
which is a more sustainable "business model" than paying MacStadium or
Github Actions is very usable and covers the common cases (gcc-4.7 to -10,
clang 3.5 to 11, msvc 14.1 and 14.2, macos-10.15) so Travis can be used only
for the rest (https://travis-ci.org/github/boostorg/core/builds/755272662).
To enable Github Actions for your repo, just copy e.g.
the same directory. No other steps are needed.
