   Confirmed it's all working and green now (including steps which utilize secrets).
   
   @micafer @tonybaloney @vdloo @c-w and others - does any one you have any objections to
switching to Github actions?
   
   I think we should do it for multiple reasons:
   
   1. Better end user experience
   2. Faster build run times
   3. (for now) free for open source projects
   
   Run times have been especially problematic for the past year or so - over week when a lot
of Apache projects were triggering builds it could take may hours for a job to start (IIRC,
there were around 50 builders shared for all the Apache projects).
   
   Travis CI also recently announced changes which are not good for open source projects (https://blog.travis-ci.com/2020-11-02-travis-ci-new-billing).
   
   Having said that - even though those changes are bad for open source projects, we should
still thank and be grateful for Travis which we successfully utilized for many years.
   
   I believe Travis CI does have some special free builders for Apache (or it had them at
some point), but speed is still an issue.
