Or putting in "Cluster operator machine-config is reporting a failure" in the serch ci tool
In dumping the build logs from the recent runs, I'm consistently seeing error logs of this type:
level=fatal msg="failed to initialize the cluster: Cluster operator machine-config is reporting a failure: Failed to resync 4.1.0-0.nightly-2019-05-09-213253 because: timed out waiting for the condition during syncRequiredMachineConfigPools: pool master has not progressed to latest configuration: controller version mismatch for rendered-master-f6c5d0693e1b59b15b350d12d9c75dc4 expected b92b681d55bbe071d0f6f9dda080b3a77a879ff9 has 51229c70416ca18819e3a4a0bee4dce35157a1f8, retrying: timed out waiting for the condition"

This is narrowly a dup of bug 1707928, but I'm going to re-purpose this one to be about the larger ART/CI issue of different commits of the same repository entirely being used for different referenced images within the same release image (e.g. see , ).
 should help debug CI/oc for this issue. See  for why I want more detail on ImageStream fetching.
 has a guard for this so 'oc adm release new ...' will fail-fast when it happens. I think we want the guard, but should keep this bug open until we can keep this from happening by fixing the tooling that feeds 'oc adm release new ...'. Luke has some ideas about fixing partial syncs that might help with the root cause (at least for ART builds).

@tim - This is a test blocker
Waiting for https://github.com/openshift/machine-config-operator/pull/743 to merge and then can rebuild.
https://github.com/openshift/machine-config-operator/pull/743 was really a separate issue.
Verified on 4.1.0-0.nightly-2019-05-14-202907 - install successful
