As you conduct that science experiment, I'd love feedback on what it is
from the experiment that we can provide. We currently only have one
piece of our dev infrastructure which is not hosted by us (launchpad
bugs) and I'd really like to avoid increasing reliance on 3rd party
systems. I don't have a great answer for you otherwise at the moment -
so I think it's a worthwhile experiment - but if one of the lenses you
look at it through is "how can the openstack infrastructure, process or
tooling be improved" I'd greatly appreciate it!
