Yeah I agree - FWIW we have discussed this before, and AIUI the plan was:

1 - Get multinode coverage of an HA deployment with more than on
controller (e.g the 3nodes job) but with containers enabled
2- Implement a rolling minor update test based on that
multi-controller HA-with-containers test

AFAIK we're only starting to get containers+pacemaker CI scenarios
working with one controller, so it's not really reasonable to block
this, since that is a prerequisite to the multi-controller test, which
is a prerequisite to the rolling update test.

Personally I think we'd be best to aim directly for the rolling update
test in CI, as doing a single node minor update doesn't really test
the most important aspect (e.g zero downtime).

The other challenge here is the walltime relative to the CI timeout -
we've been running into that for the containers upgrade job, and I
think we need to figure out optimizations there which may also be
required for minor update testing (maybe we can work around that by
only updating a very small number of containers, but that will reduce
the test coverage considerably?)

I completely agree we need this coverage, and honestly we should have
had it a long time ago, but we need to make progress on this last
critical blocker for pike, while continuing to make progress on the CI
coverage (which should certainly be a top priority for the Lifecycle
squad, as soon as we have this completely new-for-pike minor updates
workflow fully implemented and debugged).
