FreeBSD support #1818
@jack-pappas currently, it's a no-go I'm afraid, as our virtualization platform is based on Linux. We're working on things to allow for more virtualisation providers, but hard to say what that's usable. The second challenge then is to get all of our Chef cookbooks working on FreeBSD.
Are the Chef cookbooks independent from the virtualization layer? If so, the work to get the cookbooks working on FreeBSD could start now in anticipation of the new virtualization layer. Assuming that's the case, it'd still allow people to set up their own private TravisCI servers on FreeBSD.
Thinking out loud - when the cookbooks are updated to support FreeBSD, it might be useful for running CI builds of the ports tree and trunk.
