I'm aiming to do exactly the opposite of this i.e. no automagic.

My experience has been that the really heavy-duty CI setups are too
difficult to understand and troubleshoot for end-users like me. I spent a
week working on installing Jay's tools, with very generous help from Jay
himself, and for me it was a dead end [*]. I now consider these to be tools
for openstack-infra insiders rather than guys like me who are maintaining
tiny drivers.

I don't know if other people have had a different experience from me. It
does seem like 3rd party CI is broadly a lot more problematic than
advertised. I have seen only relatively few frank experience reports from
people operating CIs and I suspect there is a rich and interesting untold
story there :-). (Maybe it would be interesting to do a survey some day.)
