We need this. Please find a tool which suites best, and we will let
Dmitry's team to enable it. I assume there is not such a thing in OpenStack
Infra (otherwise we could just reuse it).
Also, I would add a check, that any new bash file should not contain, let's
say, more than 50 lines. If it is larger than that, it has to be very well
explained, why it can't be written in Python and covered by unit tests.
It is quite sad to see bash hacks in different places of something which
has to be maintainable by many people over years.
