Thanks. +1. i added my list in ethercalc.

Left put scenario tests can be run on periodic and experimental job. IMO on
both ( periodic and experimental) to monitor their status periodically as
well as on particular patch if we need to.

> - the patch for this is [2] and we will approve this by the end of the day
> - we will monitor stability for a week - if needed we may reduce
> concurrency a bit on API tests as well, and identify "heavy" tests
> candidate for removal / refactor
> - the QA team won't approve any new test (scenario or heavy resource
> consuming api) until gate stability is ensured
> Thanks for your patience and collaboration!
