That's one of the primary design goals for Zuul v3. See the third
paragraph at
for a bit about it (and please help us implement if you find this
interesting!). Not that it's particularly attempting to replicate
features from other job management systems, but we do want projects
to have the freedom to take more control over some of their job
definitions without needing our already overworked reviewers on
every tweak. Also this makes changes to many of those jobs
self-testing, so less job breakage and fewer iterations on the

configuration in the openstack-infra/project-config repo, the above
is purely in reference to aspects of the v3 redesign.
