Since the addition of Travis CI builds, there is some more progress
towards more testing.  I was just wondering if anyone was thinking about
(or is already working on) some settings for other CI environments as
well.  For example if configured AppVeyor, we could have MSVC builds as
well.  And there are more of those, I didn't compare all of them, but
the more environments we have, the more build failures we might catch.
Or even test failures, maybe.

FWIW, I would consider building with MSVC a non-goal unless its feature
set has massively improved to support the various GCC extensions we rely
on. I've always assumed that only target compilers which support GCC C
dialect, which basically means GCC or CLang or Intel CC and not MSVC.


Apparently, the Appveyor also supports building with MinGW, MSYS2 and
others.  I mentioned MSVC because I've seen some configure code that
handles the option.  But what would be nicer is 'any' Windows
compilation, but we can still do it in Fedora, too.

Aside from that, I'd be happy to see addition of more CI environments if
they cover platforms / combinations we don't already touch. In particular
I think it would be useful to see some non-x86 architectures covered.


Claudio mentioned the same, but it looks like the hardware is the issue.
For a simple start, I can run something at home on a aarch64, but that's
a cheap board, so until it gets proper support in mainline kernel, it's
not very helpful.  I don't have much spare time on my hands, so I won't
promise anything, but I might try giving that a spin, just for the fun
of it.

Daniel
