Do purchased or granted credits expire?

@Montana And also, please, could you clarify if the credits purchased, or credits received as a grant from Travis to OSS, can at some point expire (e.g. sponsors prepay expected load for 3 years, but won’t we see them disappear after one year?) Is there any inflation anticipated (10 credits per Linux minute today… what would it be in a year?)

And as many posts and screenshots and tooltips keep confusing us about, if a project or user account clicks to accept the Free Mode - is it a one-time deal to expire the 10000 credits and cease CI for a project, or is this a monthly replenishable allowance? For smaller projects, that might actually suffice, barely…

Hey @jimklimov,

Travis credits do not expire at all, if you purchase them they will last forever until you actually consume them. Suppose you bought ~500,000 credits, these do not have any expiry. You can consume them in 1 month, 1 year, 6 years or even 10 years.

I hope this clears things up a bit.
