This is the cantrip in devstack-gate that's collecting the logs into the

It's also probably worth dumping the whole journal in native format for
people to download and query later if they want (I expect that will
become more of a thing):


If you are using devstack-gate already, this should be happening for
you. If things are running differently, those are probably the missing
bits you need.
