Hi Julia,

Yea, the Zuul based Third Party CI I'm building uses Molten Iron to manage bare metal. I believe other Ironic 3rd Party CI projects are also using it.

Though, I don't see it as an absolute necessity.

Out of curiosity, is anyone still using MotltenIron?

A little historical context: It was originally tooling that came out of IBM to reserve physical nodes in a CI cluster in order to perform testing. It was never intended to be released as it was tooling
*purely* for CI job usage.

The reason I'm asking is that the ironic team is considering going ahead and retiring the repository.
