>> [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.

Sorry here is the powerkvm ci wikipage linked from the third party
systems wikipage which meets requirements:
