So, with some of the highest rates of patch traffic we've seen over the
last couple of weeks before the H2 deadline, I think this is really
becoming a problem. I think merge times are through the roof as a

Since the neutron gate is not a full tempest run, I think we should
consider making a temporary change. I know that turning it into a
non-voting job is not a popular solution, and I hate to even suggest
it. However, it's just a subset of the tests anyway and I think the
impact is currently overshadowing the potential for regression
detection, given the relatively small amount of coverage. Is this
something people would consider?

Of course, the other option is to try to skip the offending test if
we're running with neutron support, which may help. Since we don't know
what the problem is and it *seems* to be an issue with resources not
becoming available before a timeout (AIUI), I worry that this will just
move the problem elsewhere.
