      • Use the Travis 'build stages' feature to trigger package builds only if the 'regular' build succeeds.[0]
      • Use Docker to provide the build environments for CentOS 6 and 7. [1]
      • Use the native Ubuntu 14 OS for debian packages.
      • Name the packages using build numbers, git commit hashes (first 7 digits is generally considered good enough). Also, look at `git rev-parse --short=7 --verify HEAD` which will give you a seven digit hash if it's unique, or add more digits as needed. [2]
