We've discussed this multiple times and each time the consensus has been to

a functional/integration test in the same commit as a bug or feature. This

tests.
But how will you handle in-tree Tempest plugin in stable branches?
Tempest is branchless and other in-tree plugins have been doing ugly
things like checking out specific Tempest commit which is not
packageable :(

Alan

We're doing the following, which I think will mitigate branchless concerns for now:

- minimal dependency on tempest imports, only tempest.config and tempest.test_discover.plugins

- self contained config in the [heat_plugin] namespace

- config options like skip_functional_test_list and skip_scenario_test_list so that latest tests can run against an old API which lacks the required features for all tests


I realize keeping tests in-tree is a hassle for downstream packaging, at least for now I'm in favor of keeping them in-tree but I will raise packaging concerns when we discuss this again.
