> Overall Summary:

> Thanks for the summary Ghanshyam!

We had some follow up discussion on Friday about this, after the Heat team
expressed their concern about proceeding with the plan we discussed during
the session on Wednesday.
A group of representatives of the Heat, Designate and Interop teams met
with the TC and agreed on reviving the resolution started by mugsie in
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/521602 to add an alternative to hosting
tests in the Tempest repo. Unfortunately I was only there for the last few
minutes of the meeting, but I understand that the proposal drafted there
was to allow team to have interop-specific Tempest plugins co-owned by
QA/Interop/add-on project team. mugsie has updated the resolution
accordingly and I think the discussion on that can continue in gerrit

Just to clarify, nothing has been decided yet, but at least the new
proposal was received positively by all parties involved in the discussion
on Friday.

Action Items:
> - mugsie to abandon https://review.openstack.org/#/c/521602 with quick
> summary of discussion here at PTG
This is not valid anymore, we should discuss this further and hopefully
reach an agreement.

> - markvoelker to write up clarification to InteropWG process stating that
> tests should be moved into Tempest before being proposed to the BoD
> - markvoelker to work with gmann before next InteropWG+BoD discussion to
> frame up a note about resourcing testing for add-on/vertical programs
> - dhellmann to adjust the TC resolution for resource requirement in QA
> when new adds-on program is being proposed
> - project teams to convert  interop test and  framework as per tempest
> like tests and propose to add to tempest repo.
If the new resolution is agreed on, this will become one of the options.

> - gmann to define process in QA about interop tests addition and
> maintainance
This is still an option so you may still want to do it.
