> lot of activity from the TripleO team as well which does their
> deployments on CentOS which means that the CentOS support is very
> reliable and CI is always sought after.
> However, starting a while back, we started seeing occasional failures

> because of some Tempest issue.  This means that with every Puppet
> change, we're wasting ~80 minutes of CI run time for a job that will
> always fail.
> We've had a lot of support from the packaging team at RDO (which are
> used in Puppet deployments) and they run our integration before
> promoting packages which makes it helpful in finding issues together.
> However, we do not have that with Ubuntu neither has there been anyone
> who is taking initiative to look and investigate those issues.
> I understand that there are users out there who use Ubuntu with Puppet

> Unfortunately, if we don't have any folks stepping up to resolving
> this, we'll be forced to drop all CI for Ubuntu and make a note to
> users that Ubuntu is not fully tested and hope that as users run into
> issues, they can contribute fixes back (or that someone can work on
> getting Ubuntu gating working again).
> Thanks for reading through this, I am quite sad that we'd have to drop

> can do with a much smaller team.
> Thank you,
