I got started with Jenkins only because my company had it, and so I was familiar with it, but hadn't used the GitLab/GitHub frameworks. I'm not ready to configure GL/GH style CI myself, beyond crude bug fixing, but I am quite comfortable with it. Indeed, I believe it's simpler, because it can be merge request aware, but doing that with Jenkins requires additional work.

[One cranky request --- if we set this up in that way, please use gitlab-ci.yml or some other visible filename, instead of the dotted filenames that are hidden by default. I'm not sure why people think hiding critical configurations is a good idea, but I don't. Thanks!]

I currently run the ASDF tests on MacOS, but not using Jenkins, only doing it by hand (since that's what my laptop runs). So running MacOS automatically would be a nice-to-have, but is not critical.

I currently don't run the ASDF tests on Windows, but I should, since it's such a different platform. Dave Cooper has kindly offered me access to a Windows VM for testing, but I haven't gotten around to setting it up. It would be lovely if we could hook Windows testing into whatever CI framework we end up with.
