Interesting. What's the reason to justify the effort?

I personally can't see the benefit of switching to a generic paid service when we already have a highly customised and working infrastructure based on buildbot and buildkit - we do testing in VMs as well as continuous integration.

What is the advantage?

Suggest wont fix?

From IRC today:

<rgrp> dread: btw have a big suggstion -- switch to continuous.io for our buildbot stuff ...
<rgrp> openspending have done this and it's a nice setup ...
<dread> rgrp: interesting - what's better?
<dread> i assume it just starts a script and reports the result?
<rgrp> that's right though also has integration with some bakcens (but we probably don't need that)
<rgrp> the point is we don't need to boot machines, install and configure buildbot etc (though we may now have automated that ...)
<dread> ah, i see, it's in the cloud
<dread> did all that months ago, and don't need to setup the machine any more.
<dread> if we do it again though, I'm all for it
