Subject Re: [DISCUSS] TravisCI status on GitHub Page
Date Tue, 21 Mar 2017 13:50:21 GMT
Copying my answer from JIRA:

Many builds are marked as "failed" these days simply due to exceeding the
50 minute limit in one profile.
The status kind of makes the project look bad without a reason.

We have quasi never a broken master, and currently not even flaky tests :-)
For a code base of that size, that's a remarkable job by the community.
Would be a pity if this is reflected differently to the works for reasons
of timeouts and build infrastructure issues.

I am +1 for removing the tag.
