With the shift to Gitlab we should be able to provide this hopefully.

We're still figuring out how to be able to provide CI in an easy to
maintain manner (in terms of controlling platforms builds are done
for, which branches, etc).
This is a non-trivial problem (which is why Jenkins is only able to do
master/trunk and stable builds currently) but it should be solvable.
