Hi Simon,

There is some automated CI testing done one gitlab.com. Tim, can you please
answer my question from [1]?

But it does not do so on multiple platforms, because
  * The CI systems for different platforms have different configurations
    (gitlab vs. travis vs. hydra etc.), and I don't have time to learn each
    of them. Volunteers for learning and putting in place a travis or hydra
    CI would be welcome!
  * Some platforms are not covered by CI testing platforms (e.g. AIX, Solaris,
    Minix, but also Alpine Linux).

I occasionally do testing of all of gnulib or, more frequently, the POSIX
related part of gnulib. But it's really occasional, not systematic. And
the platforms I test on reflect my personal preferences.
