This sounds great! We (the CoreOS team) are heavy users of the CentOS
CI OpenShift cluster, both for building and shipping Fedora CoreOS, as
well as enabling lots of upstream CI testing. (For reference, see our
repos at [1] and [2]). Having FCOS being built and our upstream
projects tested in an OCP4/RHCOS cluster is a very nice step towards
closing the CI feedback loop.

Looking forward to it! Feel free to reach out if you hit any issues or
