After the last (terrible) weeks in CI, it's pretty clear we need to
find a solution to reduce and optimize our testing.
I'm now really convinced by switching our current scenarios jobs to
NOT deploy the overcloud, and just an undercloud with composable
services & run tempest.

- deploy 1 node instead of 2 nodes, so we save nodepool resources
- faster (no overcloud)
- reduce gate queue time, faster development process, faster CI

- keep overcloud testing, with OVB
- reduce OVB to strict minimum: Ironic, Nova, Mistral and basic
containerized services on overcloud.

I really want to get consensus on these points, please raise your
voice now before we engage some work on that front.
