This. While forcing work on teams to do busywork is undeniably A Very
Bad Thing (TM), I do think the longer we leave this, the worse it'll
get. The zuul-jobs [1] patch will probably introduce some pain for
projects but it seems like inevitable pain and we're in the right part
of the cycle in which to do something like this. I'd be willing to help
projects fix issues they encounter, which I expect will be minimal for
most projects.
