Ah, okay. So in that case, ci/README.rst should point out that the yml
file has further docs, so that the users don't have to look too deep.

Well, I only ever really push to my fork to run CI, so I definitely want

happen regardless of how that's set up. If that ends up to be a problem
I'll most likely have to setup private runners.
