Frequently asked questions

Pronouns?
"He", "him", and "his", if you please. Chances are I'll answer to "pup", too.
How long does a Jepsen test take?
Usually 3-12 weeks for getting the system installed, configured, and writing/running tests, plus vendor back-and-forth. Writing a post typically takes ~10 hours, and another 6 or so for editing. Talks take about a week to write and another week to rehearse.
Have you tested X?
Every Jepsen test is here.
Can you test X next?
Tests take 1-3 months. I do take suggestions into consideration, but I can't promise you anything. Backlog is a few years long at this point.
Why haven't you reviewed my pull request?
I'm so sorry. Life keeps getting in the way of me being a responsive maintainer. Your hard work deserves better!
