We're using ShiningPanda's hosted CI for IPython:
https://jenkins.shiningpanda.com/ipython/

It has a number of things going for it - not least that the basic
service is free for FLOSS - but, to misquote, you can have any OS you
like, so long as it's Debian 6. I get the feeling that they're still
developing things, so maybe there will be more options in the future,
but that's the state now.

You may notice an ipython-mac job in the list - one of our
contributors kindly set up his Mac to run the test suite overnight,
and we have ShiningPanda download the zipped results. It's a neat
trick, but it's not really a solution if you're testing many OS
flavours.
