> Currently we build on three linux operating system levels in CI in order to 
> maximize language coverage.  We also build against a very old Visual Studio 
> (2010).  The project has expended considerable energy attempting to maintain 
> a wide swath of language level coverage stretching back 5 or more years.  
> This has become prohibitively expensive to maintain and must change.
> The proposed new CI operating system coverage rules for the project are:
> h3. Linux
> # We will run all build jobs on the latest stable Ubuntu operating system, 
> currently Ubuntu Artful (17.10).
> # Where a linux distribution fails to keep reasonably current with a language 
> we will upgrade it to something more reasonable.  (Example: Ubuntu Xenial 
> uses node.js 4.x which is EOL RTS in April 2018, so we install 6.x).
> # We will additionally run "make check" on the LTS release before the latest 
> stable Ubuntu using all stock provided languages, where supported.
> h3. Windows
> Each build job takes about 20 minutes and there is no parallelization, so we 
> are only going to build 3 jobs:
> # We will "make check" on the current Visual Studio release, MSVC2017.
> # We will build one 32-bit cygwin and one 64-bit MinGW job.
> This will yield the following changes:
> # We will drop the Ubuntu Trusty docker environment and build job.
> # We will have one "make check" on Ubuntu Xenial (16.04 LTS).
> # The remainder of jobs will use Ubuntu Artful (17.10), until Bionic (18.04 
> LTS) comes out.
> # We will shift from Visual Studio 2010 and 2015 builds to 2017 builds.
> # We will add a cygwin 32-bit build and keep the 64-bit MinGW build.
> Total build time should be 1 hour or less - we'll see how close we get to 
> that goal.
