In the case of (nova):

It was seen in a "in the wild".  That particular issue didn't seem to break
anything (for nova) but did record lots of tracebacks in logs.

The keystone failure with 0.18.2 *was* limited to tests and has been worked
around for the time being.

The Neutron issue:

I don't think this was a test-only scenario, and was a clear regression between
0.18.3 and 0.18.3

In my opinion we'll need something to increase faith in a new release, be that
manual effort or better tests/tools

The challenge seems to be getting back to a point where we can function.

I suggested moving back to 0.17.4, but that's going to be hard[1] as we've made
several library releases that have "evelntlet>=0.18.2"

So perhaps [2] is the right thing to do, as it was mostly good.  I think we can
deal with the log spam while we test 0.18.4

Like I said earlier the eventlet team has been very responsive and I'm
certainly not ignoring that.  We just need to be confident that whichever
approach we take we can complete it my R-5

Yeah, there have certainly been some test-only issues.

I *think* we've passed the point where we're seeing issues restricted to the
unit/functional/tempest tests.

Yours Tony.
