Hi all,

I think we have quite the same issue with the neutron testing. I already put it on the agenda for the QA meeting for today.
Let's make it to a general topic.

+1 , the description will eventually contribute to documenting the scenarios

yet the submitter (step 1) remains in charge of adding to the draft the

how about we map at least one volunteer to each service (via the HACKING

when the tests touch the service? this should help avoid tests duplication.

I very much like the idea of using gerrit for this
