the request was to have the unit tests and ideally func tests run on ppc and report back to the comunity for every patch if you have the capasity to
do that. if its not per patch then a way to manually trigger it per patch would be perfered in addtion to the periodic.
what i would suggest is running just 1 python version per branch form the supporte python runtimes for that branch
the supproted runtimes are defined here https://github.com/openstack/governance/tree/master/reference/runtimes
so if you are unning this on a ubuntu image then master shoudl ideally use python 3.8 for both functional and unit tests.
the problem we are trying to adress is currenlty we have some unit/fucntional tests that fail when running on ppc so we
woudl like to use your third party ci to catch that the same way we us its tempest test to inform if we have broken
if we took a perodic approch we would still need an ablity to trigger it manually so that we could test teh patchs that proport to fix
a breakage in compatiablity.
