[Openstack] Gating on deployment and integration tests for stable/diablo

Thanks for the update James.

The Ubuntu project has also been setting up per-commit testing for
both stable/* and trunk, where the cloud setup is achieved by juju
using per-commit packages.

I would quite like for this test run to initially be a post-commit
blame alert requiring manual resolution, when confidence is provided
around the validity of the test runs - i'm aiming to push for this to
be an additional gate for stable/*.


Kind Regards,
Dave Walker
