Informations on the repos is not yet done for all the repos...I've

The reason for not being integrated into GitHub is simply a security
reason cause if a Pull Request could trigger a build on the ASF Jenkins
you could inject any kind of code there...which is a thing which no one
would like to have...

As Enrico already pointed out we have some experiments with GitHub
Actions or Travis build for a kind of pre check that should be improved...

Based on my experience with GitHub actions[1] and long expreience with
Travis CI would prefer GitHub actions cause all the builds are driven by
Docker images where as on Travis each build is running on a CI within a
docker machine (image as well) travis there are some limitations
for Maven versions, Windows Support and MacOs is very limited support
which is also a reason for going into GitHub Actions and also using ASF

Also you can see on [2] the results of the master of each job ...


if you take a look at: "Maven TLP" you will see all repositories which
are needed in there ...

I've started with GitHub actions and I would like to continue with
GitHub actions cause it's supports at the moment more things compared to
travis ci.

We could go for pre check on GitHub actions to get a good feedback for
contributors first and afterwards for a committers in neeeds to be done
on a branch and run on ASF enviroments...(I think this should be made
simpler to make it easier for committers to integration PR's..).

I think the hardest thing could become the build of maven core including
running integration tests...If you like to start that I would happy to
help ...

See as an example the following GitHub Actions:
