virtual-machine-based infrastructure.

       Deprecation: Container-Based Linux Build Environments

Hi OSGeo!

We’re emailing to make sure you know about the ongoing deprecation of 
the container-based Linux build environment. As we have communicated on 
the blog 
and our changelog 
we are now routing all Linux builds to the virtual-machine-based Linux 
infrastructure (“sudo: required” infrastructure). We believe this change 
facilitates a more intuitive build configuration experience that is more 
in line with how the majority of our customers and community use Travis CI.

Starting today, we will begin routing all Linux builds to the 
virtual-machine-based infrastructure, regardless of the setting for the 
sudo keyword in a .travis.yml file. We expect minimal impact to your 
builds, unless you specifically safelist Travis CI IPs as part of your 
CI/CD pipeline. If so, we recommend you update those values (see the 
for the new IPs to use). The virtual-machine based environment has all 
the same tools as the container-based environment, along with better 
compute resources and support for building Docker containers.

We’re contacting you directly as it looks like you have at least one 
repository that ran a build within the last week on your open- and/or 
closed-source projects, where the build configuration is explicitly 
configured for the container-based build environment. This build 
configuration(s) may potentially be affected by this change, so we 
wanted you to be aware this change is happening. Your build traffic will 
be migrated automatically soon, or your can opt-in sooner by changing 
your .travis.yml(s) to use sudo: required.

Of course, if you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact 
us at support at travis-ci.com, or let us know on the community forum 

Happy building!

Thanks so much,
Travis CI Product Team
