[openstack-dev] [ironic] Rechecking, gate breakages, the whiteboard, and you

I’ve noticed on several patches over the last few weeks, during various gate outages, that some folks are blindly rechecking their patches even when the gate is hard broken. Just a reminder that if you see a gate failure, and you aren’t sure it’s related to your change, to please check the ironic whiteboard (http://bit.ly/ironic-whiteboard— as listed in /topic in IRC). The whiteboard will tell you if we expect CI to be broken, and if so, what’s going on.
Blindly and repeatedly rechecking patches just uses up CI resources that could be used to land patches that aren’t being held up by the broken gate, so please avoid doing that.
