Build/Test Tools component

The Build/Test Tools component upcoming roadmap includes, but not limited to the following during the 4.4 cycle:

Enhance unit tests for persistent object caching in #31491


Test Coverage
Building on wonderboymusic‘s previous static code analysis using Scrutinizer in #33491 we’ll extend this to include test coverage analysis.

Travis CI
We’re already ready for PHP7 when it’s released, but we’ll throw the switch at the same time in #33410, we’re also going to start testing against an array of database versions and vendors including MariaDB, see #30462

Split Gruntfile.js into multiple files in #29883, optimize PNG and SVG image files in #30587, and add comments to files automatically created in #30666.

Furthering our CSS Roadmap and adding CSS linting in #29792 and likewise for SCSS in #26905

There are several documentation mini projects covering using all of the above and improving our Git docs alongside existing SVN documentation.
