I agree we must improve the communication about the distributed CI.
Starting with good naming is a good step for communicating :)

Let's discuss your proposal "UNH-IOL Performance Lab".
About "UNH-IOL", yes it is accurate, but we may want to show it as
THE lab which is shared by several community members, not only
the lab hosted at UNH.
About "Performance" word, I think we should avoid that name
because the lab will probably be used for functionnal testing as well.

Another proposal sent in parallel of this mail by Tim: "DPDK Open Lab".
I am in favor of "DPDK Community Lab".
