We can update those without any trouble. We just need to also update the
tests that check the usernames. You should be able to make all of the
changes (as per your first patchset) and then find where the tests also
need changing. Happy to help you on the review if you need more guidance.

To clarify though, these are just usernames used in the testing. They can
be anything arbitrarily. And as mentioned by James, it is still possible to
run Jenkins with zuul (in v2.5). So the tests aren't necessarily incorrect.

There are still some places in infra that do still use jenkins though. For
example, when uploading logs or assets zuul ssh's into the log server as
the user 'jenkins'. We could create a new user for zuul to use in these
