I agree it's something interesting for the project,
I've thought of the same a couple of times already.

> There has been a lot of interest in running tempest against real RDO

> issues peculiar to tempest that need to be resolved.
> 1. The way tempest configures itself and does test discovery depends
> heavily on the tests being run from a directory containing the tests.
> 2. Unlike OpenStack python client libraries, tempest changes from release
> to release in incompatible ways, so you need "havana tempest" to test a
> havana cluster and an "icehouse tempest" to test icehouse.
> The tempest group has little interest in changing either of these
> behaviors. Additionally, it would be desirable if a tempest user could
> install tempest rpms to test different RDO versions on the same machine.
> Here is a proposal for how this could work and what the user experience
> would be.
> Dealing with these tempest issues suggests that the the tempest code
> should be copied to /var/lib/tempest/{4.0,5.0, etc.} and the user should
> configure a separate directory for each OpenStack cluster to be tested.
> Each directory needs to contain:
> .testr.conf
> an etc directory containing the tempest.conf and logging.conf files
> a symlink to the tempest test modules for the appropriate version
> a copy of the test run scripts that are in the tools directory of tempest
> To help the user create such directories, there should be a global
> executable "configure-tempest-directory" that takes an optional version. If
> multiple versions are present in /var/lib/tempest and no version is
> specified then the user will be asked which version to configure.
> User experience:
> 1. Install tempest rpm: yum install tempest-4.0
> 2. Run configure-tempest-directory
> 3. Make changes to tempest.conf to match the cluster being tested (and
> possibly logging.conf and .testr.conf as well)
> 4. Run tempest with desired test selection using
> tools/pretty_tox_serial.sh or tools/ pretty_tox_serial
> Does any one have any comments/suggestions about this?
