[Matplotlib-devel] CI: only run macosx on travis cron jobs / only branches

"If you are using Linux only on .org, you will still have access to all
five concurrent builds, but if you are running both, only two of the five
concurrent builds can be used for macOS at any one time."

It sounds like they're only limiting concurrent macOS builds, so in theory
since we only have 1 we won't be affected. (I may have read the post
wrong?). If macOS jobs build up I presume that blocks other builds from
starting though?

I'm neutral either way - just testing in branches sounds like a reasonable
compromise if we'll be affected by this.
