Citing Ian Wienand in [2]

"There was a thread some time ago that suggested coverage jobs weren't 
doing much in the "post" pipeline because nobody looks at them and the 
change numbers may be difficult to find anyway [1]. This came up again 
in a cleanup to add non-voting coverage jobs in 

There really is no consistency across projects; it seems like a couple 
of different approaches have been cargo-cult copied as new projects came 
in, depending on which random project was used as a template. This 
change does a cleanup by moving all post coverage jobs into the check 
queue as non-voting jobs."

I've updated Ian's change [2] now and propose to move ahead with it - 
and suggest that projects with in-repo coverage job follow it as well. 
Let's use the new template [3] openstack-cover-jobs (and it's 
-horizon/-neutron variants) for this change.
