I thought so, too, often it is good to separate stuff into separate
commits, but in this case, it's not source code but just the CI yml
file, and the change is really trivial, so it rather sounds like
superfluous churn to me in this case to do it in a separate patch...

I guess naming/splitting is hard in this case ... many targets contain
both, "enterprise" and "hobbyist" machines ... and as long as the Travis
job runs reasonably fast, it's also not really necessary to split it.
The only real ugliness is the very long line - I haven't found a way yet
to correctly wrap this in the YML file to multiple lines .... does
anybody know how to do this in YML?
