I'm wondering why don't we use Mitaka CI tested repository [1].
IIRC, TripleO is currently using a snapshot which is updated
asynchronously by TripleO CI folks.
The problem is that we're not consistent with what RDO CI is testing. In
my memory and tell me if I'm wrong but it happens we're using an old
snapshot of packages which is older that is actually tested & verified
by RDO CI.

The benefit of using this tested repo would be:
* this repository is already gated by Weirdo [2] which is running the
same jobs as Puppet OpenStack CI.
* you would not have less jobs failures, because RDO CI would have
detected bugs before.
* tripleo folks could focus a bit more on features & bugfixes in TripleO
itself, rather than debugging CI issues and slowing down the review process.
* Puppet OpenStack CI became really stable since we're using this
repository. We have a very few number of issues since then.

Though, something I don't like in my proposal:
* tripleo would not bring short feedback to RDO folks if something is broken

But is TripleO supposed to debug other projects in the same time? Don't
we have enough challenges in our project?

This would be a temporary solution I think, until TripleO would be part
of other upstream project gate (nova, etc) maybe one day.
But at this time, I honestly think TripleO (which is an installer)
folks, spend too much time at debugging CI for some reasons that are
related to projects outside tripleo (puppet modules, openstack bugs,
packaging issues, etc).

This is just a proposal and an idea to help TripleO folks to focus on
their review process, instead of debugging CI failures every week.

Thanks for reading so far.
Your feedback and comments are more than welcome.
