Thank you for bringing the root cause to our attention and I'm sorry we 
made a mistake that broke the driver. You are right that the VMware CI 
vote should have been taken into consideration and that the VMware 
subteam members should have been added as reviewers on the patch.

I would like to see the VMware CI running again and it need only run on 
changes under the nova/virt/vmwareapi/ tree, to save on your resources. 
And on our side, I'd like us to add VMware subteam members to VMware 
driver patch reviews (I believe most of the active team members are 
listed on the priorities etherpad [0]) and to be sure we consult VMware 
CI votes when we review.
