[Ci-users] Zuul?

Dear CentOS CI Team & CI users,

We run quite a few jobs on the CentOS CI system and it's an essential 
part for testing our libvirt deployment style of TripleO Quickstart.

With the recent Jenkins security update our jobs broke[1] while 
requesting nodes with the cico client. It was easy to fix, however it 
made us think about the advantage of using a single job scheduler for 
all our testing.

Upstream OpenStack infra is now completely based on Zuul v3[2] without 
having Jenkins as a backend for running jobs. Soon the same thing is 
going to happen to our rdoproject.org instance as the new version of 
SoftwareFactory[3] contains the v3 version, and we're considering 
replacing our downstream jobs with Zuul based ones as well.

It would be an obvious advantage for us in the long term if we could 
unify the way we handle job running and configuration through Zuul 
instead of Jenkins.

I just wanted to test the waters with regards to the CentOS CI team's 
willingness to consider setting up an instance and the other users 
interest in it.

Please let me know what you think.

Best regards,
