[openstack-dev] [heat][qa] Split tempest plugin from heat

OK, an update on this. The current plan of record after the team meeting 
today goes something like this:

1) Identify tests that are moving to the new plugin repo, and remove 
them from the heat repo.
2) Start using the utils (base classes &c.) from the plugin repo in the 
remaining heat tests.
3) Find a way to run both the plugin tests and the in-repo tests as part 
of the same test run in the gate.
4) Remove the tests that are _not_ moving from the plugin repo.

There's been some interesting related discussion on 
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/521602/ that I'd encourage everyone to 
read. I like the idea of a configurable plugin system that's independent 
of Tempest to solve (3), but we'll see what comes out of that 
discussion. If that doesn't pan out then we can probably still do it the 
old-fashioned way.

I made a first pass at categorising the tests based on the categories I 
identified in that discussion here:


If other Heat folks could take a look and comment on/move stuff they 
think is wrong, that would be helpful. In particular, I'm pretty 
uncertain whether most of the things I listed under Interop Tests are 
actually good candidates for interop testing, or if they should just be 
regression tests.
