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 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)...in 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  the results of the master of each job ...

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
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
