Thank you for starting this discussion, Kevin.

I look forward to getting some responses from developers. Even if you
don't have a time suggestion, please offer your description of your
workflow and how third party ci responses play a role in that workflow
so we can try to make a good decision here.

Third party ci admins are trying to come up with a standard for testing
response times that the community can accept. If we don't have any input
from developers here, third party ci admins are going to conclude that
developers don't care (I know you do) and pick a time frame that works
for them, which likely won't work for developers.

I look forward to having some options to draw from here. I hope you
consider posting your input.

My thanks,
