[openstack-dev] [qa][tc][all] Tempest to reject trademark tests

I've been following this discussion from a safe distance on the mailing
list, and I just caught up on the IRC conversation as well.

It was my understanding that if a project had tests that were going to be
run for the purposes of determination whether something met the standards of
"OpenStack Powered Databases" (TBD), then those tests would reside in the
tempest repository. Any other tempest tests that the project would have for
any purpose (or purposes) should, I understand, be moved into an independent
repository per the Queens community goal[1].

I'm particularly interested in having this matter decided in an email thread
such as this one because of the comment in IRC about a verbal discussion at
the forum not being considered to be a 'binding decision' [2]. It had been
my understanding that the forum and the PTG were places where 'decisions'
were made, but if that is not the case, I'm hoping that one will be
documented as part of this thread and formalized (maybe) with a resolution
by the TC or the Interop/DefCore body?
