Can you please elaborate a bit? its not good for supporting multi Jenkins
environments or not good to manage bare metal slaves in general?
It seems that the beaker plugin knows how to ask Beaker to run Beaker jobs;
It does not seem it knows how to ask it to just allocate hosts, and it does
not seem to manage slaves in any way.

The reserve plugin? its quite buggy and we couldn't make it work properly
for years, I wouldn't rely on it as a good solution.
Yeah I wouldn't want to try to go back to that buggy fabric/foreman
combination. And it wasn't allocating slaves anyway, just bare metals to be
accessed via fabric.
But perhaps given the (relatively new) automated hardware discovery
feature, it may be possible to build an allocation flow based on it. Maybe
someone already did that and wrote an appropriate Jenkins plugin.

Please try to reach out to other projects like Fedora/Atomic/CentOS and
see how they manage BM slaves.
