[openstack-dev] Tempest testing for optional middlewares

Hello everyone,

I'm addressing this email to the dev list because I couldn't find a way
to get in touch with the testing team. Hopefully someone here will have
the answer to my question or can point me to the correct people to ask.

I am writing Tempest tests that cover the behavior of some optional
Swift middlewares (precisely account_quota and container_quota). 
It occurs to me that these middlewares are optional and may not be
 present in every Swift installation. In this case, I'd like Tempest to skip 
this test rather than fail it.

What's the correct way of detecting the presence of the middleware
before launching the test?

Thank you,
Joe H. Rahme
