Thanks for your response! So the solution I proposed fits in common
openstack practices, that's cool.

I will definitely use zuul-cloner as it works for this case, but I would
use it inside our script and
then invoke the script in job macro. That will ensure that we will have the
same mechanism
working on local machine and on CI.

What do you think?
