This email is a follow-up on the discussion we are currently having in
the LDT (Large Deployment Team) session at the OpenStack Ops Meetup. [1]

We collectively identified a lack test coverage around multi-region
support. A region being the concept found in Keystone catalog, not the
geographically concept.

Issues identified revolved around configs changes (without proper
release notes), lack of support in OpenStack clients [2] or maybe
OpenStack clients within services themselves.

Some issues got fixed after bug reports were opened, this is great.

However I feel like most were found out too late in the process when it
could have been detected much earlier in the QA process.

I would like to start a discussion around multi-region test coverage and
how we can improve the overall quality around multi-region support.
