Hi all,

As per discussions in the budget thread [1], Travis CI costs $828/year, and the default MapServer project budget is $1000/year. 
I propose we migrate completely away from Travis to GitHub Actions for all MapServer projects, and close the Travis account. This will free up budget for 2024 and beyond for other project activities. 

Steps include:

- MapServer CI migration to GitHub Actions (GHA) - https://github.com/MapServer/MapServer/blob/main/.travis.yml
  - Include testing of 2 versions of PHP, possibly using https://github.com/shivammathur/setup-php
  - Include AddressSanitizer in GHA
- MapServer Documentation migration: https://github.com/MapServer/MapServer-documentation/blob/main/.travis.yml

MapCache and TinyOWS have already moved to GHA (the legacy  .travis.yml file can be removed from MapCache). 
There remains $172 in the MapServer budget this year that will be lost at year end that could be put towards this migration. I'm happy to take this task on, and would aim to complete it next week, or if anyone else wants to tackle this prrior to year end I'm fine with that too. 

I'll start with my +1,
