Re: [rdo-list] RDO CI hardware requirements for CentOS altarch



note that a key element to the messaging from our side is that the
content is tested the way users use the code, not the way developers
deliver the code - so ideally, we want to get down to baremetal
deployments and validating distro v/s rdo and rdo v/s distro.

we typically see hundreds of bare metal deployments per day for rdo /
cloud SIG, and at the very least we should make an effort to sync
across the arch's if we can.

so, as we work through what needs doing, lets make sure we factor in
the user story we want to deliver at the other end.
