I'm in the same boat, so I'd like to ask QE/Tempest experts to provide
more information on the wiki. Here are my observation after quickly
poking at it:
- setting up venv is not needed with openstack-tempest RPM
- RPM includes config_tempest script to generate tempest.conf by
examining your cloud's service catalog. I managed to invoke it as a
non-root user:

 cd /usr/share/openstack-tempest-kilo
 source keystonerc_admin # from packstack --allinone
 tools/config_tempest.py --debug  --out /tmp/tempest.conf identity.uri
$OS_AUTH_URL identity.admin_password $OS_PASSWORD --create

... and then it fails with  Permission denied:
Looks like it wants root but I don't like that.
