[openstack-dev] [TripleO] TripleO Deep dive sessions for CI topics.

Yeahp I think in case of debugging upstream submissions (on CI)
it's the same process of debugging locally those errors,
in which case, the only missing part there I think can be
just to point where to see when reading CI logs.

What I think will be a bigger challenge it's about to
teach other people to understand and master how
TripleO CI works, including how to define new jobs,
where to see when we have a package conflict
breaking the build, or how to detect infra issues
among other topics. (This won't be for debugging
submissions, instead to debug when we have CI

Not sure if it's needed a deep historical understanding about
how CI was built and about how it's actually working
but I think this will make people love a little bit more
our CI.

I'll add more items to the Etherpad, let's see how many people
are interested.
