I don't think anyone is saying it's not ever going to be voting, it's just
an up-front recongnition that right now it sometimes isn't reliable enough
because there are significant outages, which TripleO will get blamed for,
even if it's a regression in a project (maybe one of those helpfully
ignoring non-voting jobs ;)
