Organization private repository Read permissions differences: Outside Collaborator vs. Team Member

The user had been an Outside Collaborator with Read access to a private repository for many weeks, but could not access the Travis CI build logs.

Giving him Write access fixed the issue, but also converting the Outside Collaborator to a Team member to the repo’s organization with Read access fixed the issue.

Unfortunately, GitHub’s documentation on Teams vs. Outside Collaborators on Organization private repositories is somewhat lacking…
