Can't the user community exert pressure on the driver developers directly
by talking to them, or indirectly by not using their drivers? How come
OpenStack upstream wants to tell the developers what is needed before the
users get a chance to take a look?

I would love to see OpenStack upstream acting more like a resource to
support users and developers (e.g. providing 3rd party CI hooks upon
requst) and less like gatekeepers with big sticks to wave at people who
don't drop their own priorities and Follow The Process.
