[openstack-dev] [Infra][Devstack] Why aren't test-requirements.txt installed during test runs?

Hello all,

When looking at a Solum patch in review [1], I wondered why Georgy 
needed to move fixtures, testresources, and httplib2 into 
requirements.txt [2] instead of test-requirements.txt, when those 
aforementioned dependencies are not for Solum itself, but rather the 
newly-introduced functional tests. When I asked Georgy on IRC, he 
mentioned that the gate doesn't install the dependencies in 

I'm wondering why that is the case? Why bother having a 
test-requirements.txt at all, if we need to list test-specific 
dependencies in requirements.txt?

Thanks in advance for answers!
