I used to rely heavily on Travis due to its educational program and general open source friendliness.
With the changes introduced on November 2nd, I see however that my account, which is a teacher account on GitHub (and hence should be an academic account on Travis), displays the following error message:
Builds have been temporarily disabled for public repositories due to a negative credit balance. Please go to the Plan page to replenish your credit balance or alter your Consume paid credits for OSS setting.
Do I understand correctly that OSS projects are now built in a sort of trial mode, and, once consumed, credits are gone until a plan is bought?
Is the educational program still active, or has it been canceled/suspended with the new pricing model?
I had been using Travis for research, OSS development, and teaching as well (as a reference CI platform for my students), so in case the educational program is no longer available I will need to find an alternative.
