We I can't argue with that...

Slave/master connections are not good at traversing firewalls, and it
would also mean we'll need to include all kinds of
internal-network-only bits in the oVirt source repos.

But we actually do have a way to do something like this, now that I
think of it. I hinted at that in the internally published email where
we announced we build a new internal CI system based on the oVirt CI
code. We can have the internal system connect directly to oVirt
Gerrit, and then run RHELx jobs.

Anyone volunteers his project to be a guinea pig for that? I'd rather
not try this on the big and complex engine and vdsm first...

Also I worry that people might confuse this with the RHV CI...
