#7430 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Reverse the order in which the Travis jobs run

Description

The Travis jobs within a build run in the order in which they're specified in .travis.yml. This means that the BuddyPress tests run on the oldest version of PHP first (5.3) and the newest version last (7.1). As a general rule, this means the slowest test jobs run first because each subsequent version of PHP is faster than the previous.

This order should be reversed so that when a committer is patiently waiting for a Travis build to complete, they are at least more likely to see unexpected failures earlier than they otherwise would.

Build Tools: Reverse the order in which the Travis CI jobs run.

  • As a general rule, this means the fastest test jobs now run first because each subsequent version of PHP is faster than the previous. When a committer is patiently waiting for a Travis CI build to complete, they are at least more likely to see unexpected failures earlier than they otherwise would.

Fixes #7430.
