How to set up TravisCI for Qt apps

When I started GitQlient and GitQlientPlugin one of the first things I wanted was to setup TravisCI for Qt apps. The main reason is, of course, to have a system that checks a clean build of both projects.

The other reason, however, is that I think its a quite nice environment to deploy your build in GitHub. Locally, your system can be messed up with versions and old objects that are not cleared, etc. By doing it in this way, one is allowed to have a clean build in a really controlled environment. In addition, you can run as much versions and they are deploy independently.

This is post is more a remind me in the future rather than a how to, although I hope people find it useful.
