I know that we already have a mirror but it's a mirror and you always have
to make the work twice.

What are the impacts? From what I find as information on chemistry-cmislib
it's difficult to assess the workload that this represents. The only
information I can find is that you have to make a ticket to the support.

To automate the tests of cmislib we must be able to install/access a cmis
server (alfresco, nuxeo, ???). Do we have this kind of server available
somewhere? With travis or gitlabci, I know  it's possible to install this
kind of server before running the tests or to use a container with all the
required stuff pre installed. Is-it possible with the ASF CI servers?

Another advantage with travis is that configuring your build is part of the
project sources. It is therefore possible to adapt it from one branch to
another. This is a feature that is very important to me in anticipation of
adding python3 support. I know that for buildbot, this is not possible.
It's too long since I've used travis to know if it's possible with this one.
