I sent an email about this to openstack-operators last Friday

So far there has been no response saying that a revert would really

I suggest that what we do is wait until Wednesday to give people on the
operators list a little more time to read and respond. If nothing has
come up by then we proceed with the revert.

We'll have to merge the tempest

and then the nova patch which has been restored will be able to
merge https://review.openstack.org/#/c/81356/
