ci-management-jjb-merge job failures
The ci-management-jjb-merge job  has been failing consistently. In fact, Vratko's remerge  of 27904 this morning kicked off a job  which subsequently failed , but was never reported in gerrit as either being started or having failed.
All of the failures have been timeouts where the Jenkins job reconfigurations are going along fine, then randomly get stalled for ~1/2 hour to an hour. The last successful run  completed in 5 min 38 seconds.
I have opened a case  to investigate / resolve this issue.
