jobs to cover all additional test cases. I'll need some help to figure out how to run the
IT tests for different systems and specifically separate them per job to minimize time, but
those would be trivial to include and massage once the basics start working.

added for all sorts of systems. The IT tests that CAS runs mostly pull down docker images
and run tests against predefined addresses and ports to connect to an external system. Syncope
can more or less follow the same approach, or we could also take advantage of the test-containers
project to simplify the setup; that would be a good experiment. (No such thing as test-containers
existed at the time CAS started doing this)
Great! Basically I meant points 3, 4, 5 of Francesco's list. Is quite 
simple to run on different containers or DBMSes, it is all summarized at 
[1]. BTW for any help doing this job don't hesitate to ask.

an email to Travis CI, asking them to increase the timeout. They are super quick to respond,
and all related changes are done on their end; nothing to modify as far as the GH repo goes
for Syncope. Still, ASF Infra might be better to submit that email...and we might not even
need it, if individual jobs can run under the current 50-minute timeout.

take a number of tries, so apologies beforehand for the noise.
