/me pat Joe on the back :)

We know, Ceilometer has been broken several times because of that in the
past months. We know we shouldn't do that, but for now we don't have
enough work force to work on a batter solution unfortunately.

A fix has been proposed and I approved it.

I don't know how to prevent that. We don't want to block Nova for making
internal changes, as we're not doing something supported in Ceilometer.

So, until now we lived with that burden and each breakage of our gate
reminds us how important it would be to work on that.
