They've been great in responding to my requests, as well.  The biggest
thing was that I wanted to see devstack support so that it's easily
testable, both by developers and by CI.  They delivered.

So, in general, I'm good with this going in.  It's just a matter of
getting the code review completed in the next week before feature
freeze.  I'm going to try to help with it this week.
