UPDATE: it turns out that people upstream are already working on this, so the idea would be to join that work.
it looks like Jenkins may be slowly going the way of the dinosaur, and certainly Zuul has some impressive capabilities, especially its approach to optimistic pipelining of CI. It would be great if we could harness those capabilities with existing git hosting providers such as gitlab and github, by adding support for them in Zuul.
This would bring some concrete advantages over the standard GitHub + Travis-CI approach; for example Travis-CI deliberately avoids retesting the updated merge commit GitHub generates when a PR is updated. This can lead to breakage in the
master branch when PRs based on outdated
master are merged.
