Another option is not to do it from Gerrit, but via a 'developer' job that
will be able
to run "heavy jobs" on demand, basically we should be able to utilize the
flow Zuul will run, only instead of basic sanity, run tier1/2 of testing
and not publish RPMs at the end.
This is more complicated than it sounds ( at least to what we knew about
developer jobs in the past),
So we'll learn more about this as we move forward with the gating project.
