Sure. However, we get to use it for free, and we've had a good gain from
that for a long time now. It's just bad timing that this coincides with our
release preparations.

Their free OSS plan is one hour per day, which is way too short for us. Not
sure how much we'd want to pay for their dedicated plan, and no idea what
performance we'd get for the money.

For our current setup, you can count way more than one hour of processing
time for each single push and for each day's run of the CPython triggered
integration tests. And then there's our set of separate developer branches
on top of that, plus the fact that we can run builds in parallel to get
faster feedback.

Seriously - thanks William!

I'm quite happy with Jenkins, though.
