The Cinder driver removal policy has been updated [0].

Drivers eligible for removal, at the discretion of the team, may remain 
in the code repository as long as they continue to pass OpenStack CI 
testing. When such a driver blocks the CI check or gate, it will be 
removed immediately.

The intent of the policy revision is twofold. First, it gives vendors a 
longer grace period in which to make the necessary changes to have their 
drivers reinstated as ‘supported’. Second, keeping these drivers in-tree 
longer should make life easier for operators who have deployed storage 
backends with drivers that have been marked as ‘unsupported’.

Please see the full statement of the policy [0] for details.
