[openstack-dev] [ci-cd] Jenkinsfile support (or repo/s for them?)

Hi folks,

I've been experimenting/investigating/playing around with the 'new' 
jenkins pipeline support (see https://jenkins.io/doc/pipeline/ for those 
who don't know what this is) and it got me thinking that there are 
probably X other people/groups/companies that are doing the same thing 
and that to me raises the question of 'why don't we work together'.

Example of a ci-cd workflow for this (in visual form, for those who are 
visually tuned):


Is anyone else looking into how to build jenkinsfiles (or there 
equivalents) for the openstack project repos? Perhaps we can work on 
them together or perhaps even we can include those same jenkinsfiles in 
the project repos themselves (thus making it that much easier to point 
jenkins at the external repos and run them through tests, functional 
tests, integration tests and so-on).

This kind of pipeline *slightly* competes with the zuul and job 
templates and such in the infra repos (but maybe compete is not the best 
wording, and perhaps complement is a better wording); but seeing how 
certain companies (at least mine) use jenkins it would be very nice to 
be able to collaborate on these (for the greater good).
