There is indeed a risk that the new dashboards won't give a meaningful view
of whether a 3rd party CI is voting correctly or not.

However, there is an elephant in the room and a much more important problem:

To measure how accurately a CI is voting says much more about a driver
author's "Gerrit-fu" ability to operate a CI system than it does about
whether the code they have contributed to OpenStack actually works, and the
latter is what is actually important.

To my mind the whole 3rd party testing discussion should refocus on helping
developers maintain good working code and less on waving "you will be
kicked out of OpenStack if you don't keep your swarm of nebulous daemons
running 24/7".
