I can lead the deep dive as i've been involved in implementation of all 
the multinode jobs (deployment, upgrade, scenarios deployment + upgrade).

Currently only the upgrade job is merged and working. Deployment job is 
ready to merge (imho :) ), let's get it in place before we do the deep 
dive, so that we talk about things that are already working as intended. 
However, i think we don't have to block on getting the scenario jobs all 
going and polished, those are not all green yet (2/4 deployment jobs 
green, 1/4 upgrade jobs green).

I hope that sounds like a sensible plan. Let me know in case you have 
any feedback.
