I've enabled Python and Ruby SDKs in Travis:

To have a Mac OS X slave we'll need buy/have it donated, Lets see of travis is good enough for now.
It should be possible to run Standard-CI scripts from travis to avoid some code duplication.

Thank you very much Barak. I agree, lets test Travis for a while before making any other change.

CC Travis CI integration for the Python SDK is now enabled. For future releases it would be good to make sure that the build in Mac OS X works before actually releasing the new version.

We agreed that using Travis CI is good enough for now, so this issue can be closed.
