Why not work together on the thing that people are working together on: 
Zuul v3 :)

Honestly, I find Jenkins clunky, Java-centric, GUI-centric, and at this 
point, mostly pointless for anyone who doesn't need a GUI for "building" 
CI jobs.

With nodepool and Zuul, there's simply no purpose to Jenkins any more 
for me.

Then again, I also think Slack is slow and pointless compared to IRC. 
But, hey, emoji.
