As somebody who has previously attempted to drive 3rd party CI in Cinder
forward and completely burnt out on the process, I have to applaud Mike's
efforts. We needed a line in the sand to force the issue, or we were never
going to get to 100% coverage of drivers, which was what we desperately

For those who've have issues getting CI to be stable, this is a genuine
reflection of the stability of Openstack in general, but it is not
something we're going to be able to make progress on without CI systems
exposing problems. That's the entire point of the 3rd party CI program - we
knew there were bugs, stability issues and drivers that just plain didn't
work, but we couldn't  do much about it without being able to test changes.

Thanks to Mike for the finally push on this, and to all of the various
people in both cinder and infra who've been very active in helping people
get their CI running, sometimes in very trying circumstances.
