> Hi,
> Suggestion: Please consider tagging your Tempest commit messages the same
> way you do your mails in the mailing list
> Explanation: Since tempest is a single project testing multiple Openstack
> project we have a very diverse collection of patches as well as reviewers.
> Tagging our commit messages will allow us to classify patches and thus:
> 1. Allow reviewer to focus on patches related to their area of expertise
> 2. Track "trends" in patches - I think we all know that we lack in Neutron
> testing for example, but can we assess how many network related patches are
> for awaiting review
> 3. Future automation of flagging "interesting" patches
> You can usually tell all of this from reviewing the patch, but by then -
> you've spent time on a patch you might not even be qualified to review.
> I suggest we tag our patches with, to start with, the components we are
> looking to test, and the type of test (sceanrio, api, ...) and that
> reviewers should -1 untagged patches.
> I think the tagging should be the 2nd line in the message:
> ======================================
> Example commit message
> [Neutron][Nova][Network][Scenario]
> Explanation of how this scenario tests both Neutron and Nova
> Network performance
> =======================================
> I would like this to start immediately but what do you guys think?
