[openstack-dev] [nova][vmware] CI results show up about a week late, if at all

It's that time of the quarter to ask about the VMware NSX CI.

I noticed on a patch [1] that merged on Feb 22, that the VMware CI 
results showed up on Feb 26th, then again on March 3rd and just today 
again on March 16th.

It's bad that the results show up several days after a patch is actually 
posted, but it's just odd that results are showing up weeks later.

Can anyone explain that? What is the current status on the VMware NSX 
CI? I feel like no one is ever around in the Nova IRC channel from the 
VMware subteam (Eric Brown is sometimes) to answer questions like this, 
and the driver is really feeling like it's no longer maintained. Just 
looking at the changes to the nova/virt/vmwareapi subtree during Ocata 
and Newton it's pretty clear there is not much going on.

I'm starting to think we should add a warning when the vcenter driver 
starts up that it's considered experimental now since we don't actually 
know what state it's in since there don't appear to be maintainers and 
the CI is not reliable.
