Just curious how long ago was this? Because resource leaks have always been
treated as bugs in tempest. We've done a lot of work over the past year to get
better about our cleanup in tempest. There are also config options to limit the
dynamic creation of resources and provide a static set of user/tenants to
limit any potential dangling users. [1] Although we should always be calling
delete for created users and projects as part of test setup. (this had to be
fixed for other internal mechanisms to work)

I'm just looking to get more feedback about this, because I see statements like
this from time to time but not many bugs being filed about specific issues
people encounter.

Do you mean because of configuration differences you don't want to run certain
tests or because of bugs in OpenStack causing intermittent failures?
