Sure, but how do I get a new VM for it? Should I write a mail to dsa@ ?

Not sure if you want more insights here, but I'll give them (as maybe,
others will happily read). Feel free to skip if you have no time.

I was at his presentation of LAVA in Portland. As long as I get a new
reseted Debian on which I can ssh to, then I can do the rest and install
OpenStack on it, and test a Debian image. Otherwise, a VM that can be
rebooted (and reinstalled from scratch?) with some kind of API will do.
Maybe LAVA can provide such an API?

Here's an example of a test run of OpenStack and its functional test
suite, called Tempest:

As you can see, this is a test using Jessie, and using the *next*
version of OpenStack (called Mitaka), to be released in a few days, and
currently living in Experimental.

I'll have to setup something using Stretch instead, and whatever version
of OpenStack that will be in it (maybe Mitaka, maybe the next one called
Newton). It shouldn't be too hard to do in Stretch, provided there's no
new added bugs, which I don't think there is, as I can already run all
unit tests at build time (this env. will only run functional tests).

This currently uses the Cirros image, because it's smaller (a few megs),
so it's faster to test OpenStack. In the context of testing the Debian
image, I could switch to the Debian image: it's only 1 or 2 lines to
change, as this was what I was doing to begin with.
