I think everyone is waiting. Besides me, no one else seems to have used
the test GitLab instance. I strongly encourage everyone to look around
the Hydra instance we use today, GitLab, BuildBot, and other CI systems
they may know.

>From the responses, here are the criteria for "a helpful CI" as John put it:


* build logs and good notifications
* good platform coverage
* clean builds of all branches+commits and reporting on each one's build
* local replicability of build environment via Docker or VM
* store build artifacts (packages, tarballs, etc.)


* good UI/UX and multiple requests for a Web GUI too
* support special build requests: specific branch, target, test (via web or 

Software and maintainer/company:

* Free software
* probable long-term support; ie they have a solid business plan
* personal logins to comment on builds or specific code

Nice to have:

* pull request awareness (not necessarily PRs in the CI system itself)
* code review capability

In order to keep the evaluation objective, I'll keep out of the voting.
