I'd have to look into it, but it shouldn't be hard. Starting VMs is
what it *does*, and if it can't support cloud-init already, I can add
it. I'm on vacation till the 19th, will follow up on this later.
It would be a good idea if the actual tests can be shared between test
systems as much as possible. I know the tests Autocloud ran were
basically just bash scripts - openQA could easily use those. What do
the tests run in kola look like?
They are embedded in kola itself. It's very much a focused tool for a
