Thanks Masayuki for the comments and thanks Bob for the explanation.

  Please let's know if there are more comments/ concerns or if we're good to proceed for voting. Thanks very much.

Hi Masayuki,

We have been running against Tempest and commenting for many months (years?) and run in the Rackspace public cloud so have no capacity issues.

Indeed the execution time is longer than other jobs, because we actually have to use double nesting (Devstack running on Ubuntu in a VM under XenServer running on a VM under XenServer) to run these jobs in the Rackspace cloud.
We are not asking to block Jenkins reporting on these jobs, so taking a little longer than Jenkins to report shouldn't be a problem.

We're currently re-processing a backlog of tests from over the weekend, due to the broken Tempest change, so for the next 24 hours I expect the reporting times to be delayed while we process the backlog.  Looking at previous changes, such as https://review.openstack.org/#/c/325243/ or https://review.openstack.org/#/c/218355/ you can see that the Citrix XenServer CI consistently reports before Jenkins.

Hi Jianghua and QA team,

Thank you for bringing this up.

IMO, it's good to make it voting in openstack/tempest. Because it's already a voting job in Nova and seems having enough stability.
And we should keep test stability for projects.

My concern is that the resource of "Citrix XenServer CI". Do you have enough resource for it?
And it seems like "Citrix XenServer CI" job execution time is the longest one in Tempest jobs.

Best regards,
-- Masayuki
