to apologize Dave if you're feeling like nobody cares or don't feel your
patch is that important. That's really not the case, it's just a matter of
scheduling and priorities and honestly sometimes there's just more in the
pipeline than we're able to actually process.
I did notice that the bulk of your bp did in fact merge so that's good.
Things like the cinderclient are a special case and don't have the same
deadlines or prioritization. I'll take a look at what you have submitted
again tomorrow, in the meantime you might want to jump on IRC at
#openstack-cinder and look up myself or even better thingee who is the PTL
for the Cinder project. There's plenty of core folks who should be willing
and able to talk through some of the process stuff with you and discuss
Also keep in mind that we have a weekly meeting on IRC that is intended to
provide a forum for topics exactly like this and help us from letting
things slip through the cracks.
