You're failing to understand the point, which is why you're in this mess to
begin with. Try listening.

We've been talking about CI's for a year. We started talking about CI deadlines
in August. If you post a driver for Kilo, it was communicated that you're
required to have a CI by the end of Kilo [1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]. This
should've been known by your engineers regardless of when you submitted your

NetApp posted a driver in Kilo, with no CI done, and no clear prioritization to
get it done in time.

I recommend you spend less time whining, own up, and take care of things so we
can revisit things in RC.
