As another example, this was the last round of this, in May:


which is a new tempest test for a Cinder API that is not supported by
all drivers.  The Ceph job failed on the tempest patch, correctly, the
test was merged, then the Ceph jobs broke:


This is really not a sustainable model.

And this is the _easy_ case, since Ceph jobs run in OpenStack infra and
are easily visible and trackable.  I'm not sure what the impact is on
Cinder third-party CI for other drivers.
