At that point I would say no.
We have been merging so many stuffs lately because of release that we
don't even know why this thing broke.
Is it in Zaqar? In Swift? In TripleO?

So yeah maybe it's not your patch but it's maybe related or maybe not.
Since nobody is able to tell it, I would suggest to not revert the
revert until we find the root cause and we fix it.
Because if we don't do that, we'll merge your patch again and
eventually increase the number of hits in the gate which is something
we don't want at this stage.

When we discussed you told me this patch wasn't a requirement to
upgrade but an enhancement. At this stage of the cycle we are looking
for stability and not for enhancements, I hope you understand that.
It's a difficult choice to make for me but I'll prefer us to fix bugs
before we continue to merge new features from now.

Keep in mind feature freeze and why we're doing this.

Thank you, that would be very helpful.
