Hi all,

A recent change  [1]  in tempest broke all Mellanox CIs.

This is the second time it happened.

After the first time it happened we decided that  Mellanox CI  will comment on tempest.

On this time I saw that Mellanox CI was commenting on that  patch with a failure but was still got approved - [2] Enabling Mellanox CI as commenting on  tempest requires  us physical resources  such as servers/NICS because it tests SR-IOV.

So I am wandering  what can be done in the future to prevent this from happen again.
A message to the DL is a good way to raise awareness on this.
Ensuring the job stability is also important, too many failures will decrease the attention on it - that said I don't have numbers for Mellanox CI failure rates, so it may be that the pass rate is already good enough.

Anyway we proposed the following fix to tempest [3]
Thanks for fixing this, and sorry about the inconvenience.
Even with the fix in, the Mellanox CI job failed, which if unfortunate.
I issued a re-check.
