[OpenStack Foundation] Zuul community feedback on Airship for OIP Confirmation

Per the OSF Project Confirmation Guidelines[0], the OSF Board of
directors is soliciting feedback from representatives of existing
confirmed Open Infrastructure Projects (so Zuul, OpenStack, and
Kata) when evaluating the Airship pilot project's upcoming
application for OIP confirmation. I reached out to the Zuul
community at large to get an idea of what interactions have been
experienced or observed relevant to these guidelines, requesting
compilation in an Etherpad[1] for ease of collaboration. The window
of opportunity for feedback was, unfortunately, shorter than
previous confirmations have afforded; this likely resulted in less
feedback overall. On the whole, however, there is a limited and
indirect relationship between the projects:

Airship is hosted in OpenDev, which integrates Zuul and Gerrit for a
unified code-review-driven development experience, so they get Zuul
project gating by defining jobs within their Git repositories. They
moved their repositories to OpenDev shortly after the Zuul v3
migration there, and have eagerly embraced its use in their workflow

While Airship contributors interface with the OpenDev sysadmins on a
somewhat regular basis, their interaction with the Zuul community
has been limited so far. In the future it would be exciting to see
them get involved in parts of Zuul relevant to their expertise, such
as Nodepool's Kubernetes provider driver or Kubernetes/Helm-related
roles in Zuul's standard library of reusable job components.
