I don't know what you're talking about here. Are you saying there was an
issue with the Tempest tests that drivers hit in allowing additional tests to
run? If so, got a link to the bug and review?

Can you further explain this... "on all sides"? I really believe panicing
could've been avoided and more time to iron out any issues if some vendors
chose to not wait last minute on requirements.

I hope you're not talking about communication on deadlines of CI's. This has
already been overly discussed/announced and you should reread the previous
thread [1] on this if you still feel that way. The next round won't matter,
because a driver won't be accepted at the beginning unless there is already
a reported CI.
