Thanks, Nadya. A similar issue came up with heat. The problem is that 
tempest really has two parts: the tempest infrastructure itself, and all 
the test files for the various projects. The tempest team needs to 
manage its blueprints and we can't do that if there are dozens of 
blueprints about test implementation across projects. This problem is 
exacerbated by the fact that launchpad is not a good tool for project 
management which is the issue you are dealing with. For now, the best 
thing would be to have a master blueprint in tempest. If you want it to 
point to sub-blueprints for various test areas, use blueprints in the 
ceilometer project rather than tempest.
