Deep dive: foreman_rh_cloud plugin

Tomorrow @Shimon_Shtein will give a deep dive into the GitHub - theforeman/foreman_rh_cloud: a plugin to Foreman that generates and uploads reports to the Red Hat cloud plugin.

This session is open to all but the plugin itself is only useful to those who have Red Hat Smart Management (I think) subscriptions.
