I think this was premature, we were actually looking at the problem last night. If
you look at:




grenade-multinode is 100% failure on both providers. The working hypothesis is
that it's because tempest is trying to login to the guest over the "private"
network which isn't setup as accessible outside. You can see the discussion on
this starting here:

TBH, there is always this push to remove jobs or testing whenever there is
release pressure and a gate backup. No one seems to notice whenever anything isn't
working and recheck grinds patches through. (well maybe not you Dims, because
you're more on top of it then almost everyone) I know that I get complacent when
there isn't a gate backup. The problem is when things like our categorization rate


routinely has been at or below 50% this cycle it's not really a surprise we have
gate backups like this. More people need to be actively debugging these problems
as they come up, it can't just be the same handful of us. I don't think making
things non-voting is the trend we want to set because then what's gonna be the
motivation to get others to help on this.
