Hi all,

I also favour Travis.

But I kindly ask you all to bear with me with
- first moving all our services and 
- bring them up to some extent and 
- only _after_ that, selectively retiring those services.

That would mean here, please lets move jenkins over, machine with enough 
space is already provisioned. Also, please lets get it running for now.
I know there are some services out there that depend on some deep links into
jenkins. No, this is not nice, and I really want to get rid of that, but please 
_after_ the move :D

Best regards
