Upstream tempest was not really constructed to serve as a shared 
library. It really wants its own dir to read/write and should not be run 
from /usr/share/openstack-tempest-kilo. The missing step here is to run 
while in some other directory. This script creates some symlinks and 
other files in that directory so that tempest can run without these 
issues. It also allows you to run tempest against multiple clouds from 
the same machine. Hope that helps.
