[Ci-users] Updated cico-workspace container image for openshift (please read)

As you're all aware now, CentOS CI infra landscape will be different in 
the next weeks/months.

One of the biggest change will be the introduction of Duffy v3 as 
replacement for the Duffy API and while there will be compatibility 
layer (allowing you to use your existing "cico" workflow), the goal is 
that each tenant will move to the new api, which itself then requires 
- you abusing directly the api endpoint (https://duffy.ci.centos.org/docs)
- use the new duffy client (pip3.8 install --user duffy[client] with a 
config file

We'd like to offer the duffy client natively in our cico-workspace 
pod/container that is automatically deployed for your jenkins jobs on 
openshift cluster.

But if we trigger it, it will also come with something additional : the 
current centos Stream8 based container is using ansible 2.9.x, which is 
now deprecated, and kicking a container rebuild would automatically 
install ansible-core 2.12.x (present in el8 natively now)

As you're aware, ansible-core doesn't have all the modules that you 
probably need to use for your workflow, so instead of install the 
meta-pkg ansible (which then install almost everything) you can come 
(reply to this thread) with a list of collections that you'd like to see 
in the base container (the less we have to pull, the better, to keep the 
container image as light as possible), we'd then add these to the 
container image.

Thanks for your collaboration,
