## Observation

Remote openQA worker fails to run tests from `openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec`, see:

needles_dir not found: /var/lib/openqa/pool/2/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/var/lib/openqa/cache/openqa1-opensuse/tests/opensuse/products/opensuse/needles (check vars.json?) at /usr/lib/os-autoinst/ line 330, <$fh> line 20.
[2020-06-04T09:10:50.934 UTC] [debug] terminating command server 19004 because test execution ended through exception
[2020-06-04T09:10:51.935 UTC] [debug] done with command server
18926: EXIT 1

Is there anything to setup?

## Motivation

As a user of remote openQA worker instances I want to be able to use openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec as well

## Acceptance criteria
* **AC1:** openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec creates jobs with valid CASEDIR and valid NEEDLES_DIR if source job is a "remote worker"
* **AC2:** openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec still creates jobs that find tests from specified git hash and needles for other workers

## Suggestions
* Croscheck the command line with which openqa-clone-job would be or is called within `openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec` in case of normal workers or the affected machines
* As it seems that the paths given to openqa-clone-job seem valid also check how openQA internally handles paths to generate the obviously wrong path like "/var/lib/openqa/pool/2/os-autoinst-distri-opensuse/var/lib/openqa/cache/openqa1-opensuse/tests/opensuse/products/opensuse/needles"
* Either apply fix in openQA side or openqa-clone-custom-git-refspec
