gcp-ovn job is consistently failing for a month:
They have been removed from the release controller by: https://github.com/openshift/release/pull/8195
and marked broken :
This BZ is to be closed when the job is fixed and reenabled.
4.5 jobs were also marked broken and need to be reenabled when this is fixed.
my understanding was gcp-ovn was a supported feature in 4.5, what's the basis for deferring this?
Yeah, good question.
We have decent gcp coverage for ovn for the cluster-network-operator and ovn-kubernetes repositories. However, CI is still flaky (it will be fixed, bz1788309 ) and we made the call that the installer-ovn-kubernetes job could be deferred until that's fixed.
Seem reasonable? We didn't want to block all installer PRs unnecessarily.
As long as you have another basis for proving the feature works, it sounds ok to me.
