Simplify the execution of the release container

Make the default Docker container entrypoint
and adjust the 'run' as the default target for using the Makefile
to perform a Gerrit release.

Simplify the life of the release manager by allowing to trigger
a release with the following simple command:

make BRANCH=<stable branch> RELEASE=<release number> SNAPSHOT=<snapshot version>

  make BRANCH=stable-3.3 RELEASE=3.3.0 SNAPSHOT=3.3.1-SNAPSHOT

Git config is automatically set (if mounted externally), using the
user's .gitconfig as a template. Credentials are asked once and then
kept in memory for the whole release process session.

Non relevant Makefile targets are removed for keeping it simple and more

Providing jobs

This project uses Jenkins Jobs Builder [1] to generate jobs from yaml descriptor files.

To add new jobs reuse existing templates, defaults etc. as much as possible. E.g. adding a job to build an additional branch of a project may be as easy as adding the name of the branch to an existing project.

To ensure well readable yaml-files, use yamllint [2] to lint the yaml-files. Yamllint can be downloaded using Python Pip:

pip3 install yamllint

To run the linter, execute this command from the project's root directory:

yamllint -c yamllint-config.yaml jenkins/**/*.yaml

Yamllint will not fix detected issues itself.
