In case you missed the announcement (I did), it turns out that open source will no longer be offered free service on travis-ci.com either.

I had realized my builds stopped working on .org [1] , and was moving them all over to .com – where they started working as expected again – but I hadn’t realized that was just buying me a tiny bit of time.

The build delays continued every day last week to Friday 6 Nov 2020. Things have caught up at the weekend. I had a time a couple of hours ago when nothing seemed to start - but that was “in the middle of the night” US time. Maybe there was some restarting of workers happening or…

https://www.traviscistatus.com/#month clearly shows that there are not enough workers during the week. It does almost catch up during US/EU midnight to early morning hours.

Looks like open-source has to be done in Australia, at the weekends or in the early hours of the morning.

As was pointed out in Builds hang in queued state linked to earlier in this topic, Travis is moving workers from travis-ci.org to travis-ci.com in preparation to fully close .org (or rather, make it read-only) around the New Year.

So you need to migrate to .com to stop experiencing delays. Note the caveats:
