Given the above, we can consider further integration of CI builds
into the devel process:

1. Use of travis-ci on private branches. Everyone can do that by
   logging into travis-ci.org with your github id and by adding your
   ovs fork repo to travis-ci. Anytime you push to a branch on your
   fork, the CI build is triggered.

2. Enable travis-ci for the main repo to catch build regressions at
   commit time.

3. As (2) is in fact too late, the ideal integration is within
   patchwork. travis-ci offers both a REST API and CLI tools to
   allow for this but it will require to extend patchwork.
