Probably I'm too distrustful, but yesterday I tried to use Travis CI
and at the end I didn't do it, because of the permissions you're
requested to give to the application:
Personal user data : Email addresses (read-only)
Repository webhooks and services: Read and write access
Commit statuses : Read and write access
Deployments : Manage deployments and
Organizations and teams : Read-only access
