With the `trigger-parameterized-builds` macro/plugin does not have a

plugin) to trigger builds and build some logic over checking if the jobs
are in the queue before triggering. However, once a job is already in
the queue (it already been triggered to start with some data from the
older AR builds, which is probably outdated), and therefore should
remove existing int/dist job from the queue before trigger adds a
new int/dist job. 
Note this applies to merge jobs as well, but there we have a rather
different requirement: the pre-existing enqueued-but-not-started job
should never be canceled.

I'd think this should be fixed in AR/parent job that is triggering these
int/dist jobs every day. The question that needs to be answered is if we
do need to build AR (and int/dist jobs) every day even if there are no
new changes to the project participating in the AR repos.
Since we do not have fully-reproducible builds we cannot assume the
build does not need to trigger just because the source code has not
changed -- one example would be a quiescent period and xtend breaking us :)
