I am not sure how the Windows installer builds and tests, does it build
the native installer for Groovy?

The native launcher repository last ran tests using Groovy 1.7.4: the
Groovy version is effectively a parameter. If Joachin tests with the
version of Groovy being packaged and it works, that is great news.

I need to switch from using Bamboo as the test framework to using
something else, Travis, CodeShip,…? (and put a test status marker in
the README.)

Gant is an ex thing. It's only user is GINT. Though IntelliJ IDEA still
ships support for it.
