This is what I've been doing for about a year in my own Jenkins server,
with quite reasonably good result (there's only an issue with the Glance
image rights which I couldn't figure out, leading to 27 failures against
1100 passed tests: see [1]). So yes indeed! :)

Well, it's all figured-out already...

Sure, but I'm well passed that stage. I'd run that, but not only, as
experienced showed me that it's easy to break the whole setup with
packages that otherwise can perfectly build and get installed. For
example, I noticed very late in the Liberty cycle that Glance and Cinder
had broken configuration generation (due to upstream issues). With such
tempest tests, it'd be figured out as soon as it breaks, and that's the
goal here.

Thanks for your review. Hopefully, I'll learn about upstream infra by
doing it. I'm just afraid to eat even more of your time by attempting to
do write the patches myself... :/
