Oh, I meant that some people think that it wasn't mainly that (that made them switch the pricing model), but that they wanted more profit.

Ah, that makes sense now. Yeah, thats probably true. I think its kind of sad you have to request more credits if your an OSS project, because tbh I think some of my OSS projects aren't that "good" to qualify.

I never really used Travis, but github actions could help you. You get 2k action minutes per month (mac has a x10 multiplier, and windows a x2), but those only count for private repos. So you basically get infinite CI time on public repo's

If you are switching from Travis to GitHub actions you should read this

Github actions are pretty cool, but when you have a somewhat large or complex OSS project I would create a GH organization, which has limited CI time, but I really don't use that much :). I really like the flexibility and the pluggability of GH actions, but my coverage service, Coveralls, I believe requires some hacks for any CI other than Travis. Thanks for the docs link, I think I will look into it.
