I'm requesting +1/-1 reporting permission (non-voting) to Nova for the
s390x libvirt/kvm (zKVM) nova ci  (check pipeline only).
We already got this permission granted in the Nova Meeting on February,
2nd 2017 , but after our CI went down on May 16 for a couple of
weeks, we somehow (technically) lost the permission. As we already got
the permission granted in the past, the CI is already sending +1/-1 to
Gerrit. But it is not showing up in the list of CIs next to Zuul,
Jenkins check, IBM PowerVM.. and therefore also not in the CI watch 
(what it did before). Getting added to this list again is the missing piece.
* Gerrit Acount: ibm-zkvm-ci
* Gerrit query on patches where the CI commented: 
* Proposal for naming: IBM zKVM CI
For any questions feel free to reach out to me (andreas_s) or to markus_z!
Why did it take so long? Well, we took the chance and designed the CI
totally new. Now it's using the current versions of nodepool, zuul and
Jenkins - the transition to zuul v3 is planned as soon as it is running
stable upstream. We're using KVM on KVM (the first version was using KVM
on z/VM) and daily image builds via DIB. We moved everything (including
zuul, nodepool & jenkins) to the z (s390x) platform (in the first
version most parts where still running on pretty old x86 HW attached to
a fragile storage system). Now we also have a test environment in place
that allows us testing patches (e.g. the transition to zuulv3) before
applying them on the production system.
