[WZ] See comments below about full/small wiki but would the below is enough or you'd want or to see more:
- networking-ci runs (with exceptions): 

- nfv-ci runs (with exceptions):
tempest.api.compute on standard flavors with NFV features enabled
tempest.scenario (including intel-nfv-ci-tests - https://github.com/openstack/intel-nfv-ci-tests) on standard flavors with NFV features enabled

 > From the wiki it looks like the Intel Networking CI tests ovs-dpdk but only for
 >Neutron. Could that be expanded to also test on Nova changes that hit a sub-
 >set of the nova tree?
[WZ] Yes, Networking CI is for neutron to test ovs-dpdk. It was also configured to trigger on openstack/nova changes when they affect nova/virt/libvirt/vif.py. It's currently disabled due to issue with Jenkins plugin we're seeing when having two jobs pointing at the same project simultaneously which causes to missed comments. Example [5]. We're still investigating one last option to get it working properly with the current setup. Even if we fail we're currently migrating to new CI setup (Openstack Infra's downstream-ci suite) and we'll reenable that ovs-dpdk testing on nova changes once we're migrated, 6 - 8 weeks from now.
Is there more you feel we should be testing our ovs-dpdk on when it comes to nova changes?

 >I really don't know what the latter two jobs test as far as configuration is

[WZ] I see some CIs have a full wiki pages [6] for their CIs apart from the usual shim wiki overview table [7]. Is that what you're suggesting or extended info about tests in the 'small' wiki [2] is ok?

[WZ] Done
