The problem I think is largly due to the fact that the RDO CI doesn't
test the same things we do in the TripleO CI. It is essentially a
different CI system.

Because the CI systems are different different breakages happen when
you try to update one component vs. another. This is why we have to
maintain 'current-tripleo' separately between RDO and TripleO.

I agree it would be nice if we could consolidate on a single repository
across these projects. It would allow us to focus on review more...
(less CI fixing).

Perhaps a test matrix comparing the two CI systems would help us get
them closer to parity with what is covered. Even better would be just
simply contributing to the same CI systems and scripts.
