Not really, IMO.

Please feel free to engage with myself and others on IRC if you have
problems. We had a first meeting on #openstack-meeting yesterday and
have started putting answers to questions about 3rd party CI here:


Let me know how we can help you!

Of course not. Now, if you were not seeking out any assistance from the
community and instead were talking to a few other companies about just
replacing all of the upstream continuous integration system with
something you wrote yourself, yes, I would say that's being
uncooperative. :)

No. Not having success in setting up a required CI link does not make
you uncooperative. Simply reach out to others in the community for
assistance if you need it.

I think you are over-analyzing this :)
