There is not, currently, though we would love to have more people on the
infra-core (and infra-root) teams.  If you know someone, or you
yourself, or your company are interested in contributing in this area,
please get in contact and we can help.  There is a significant time
commitment to working on infra due to the wide range of complex systems,
however, a number of companies are working with these systems internally
and should be able to spare some expertise in contributing to their
upstream development and operation without undue burden.

Monty corrected the problem with the bad Jenkins slave around 14:22 UTC.

In the short term, we plan to start running unit tests on single-use
slaves, just as we do for devstack jobs, which should mean single-node
errors will auto-correct (also, it makes the system more auto-scalable
according to workload).

In the long term we're looking at using non-Jenkins test runners which
should avoid this sort of problem by being significantly less complex.
