What I'm proposing isn't using or needing a custom OpenStack deployment. 
There's nothing non-standard at all about the PCI or NFV stuff besides 
the hardware required to functionally test it.

What we're talking about here is using the same upstream Infra Puppet 
modules, installed on a long-running server in a lab that can interface 
with upstream Gerrit, respond to new change events in the Gerrit stream, 
and trigger devstack-gate[-like] builds on some bare-metal gear.

Is that something that is totally out of the question for the upstream 
Infra team to be a guide for?
