[openstack-dev] [Nova][QA] Disabling the v3 API tests in the gate

Hi everyone,

As part of debugging all the bugs that have been plaguing the gate the past
couple of weeks one of the things that came up is that we're still running the
v3 API tests in the gate. AIUI at summit Nova decided that the v3 API test won't
exist as a separate major version. So I'm not sure there is much value in
continuing to run the API tests.

The main motivator for doing this is the total run time of tempest, the v3 tests
add ~7-10min of time to the gating jobs right now. [1] (which is just a time
test, not how it'll be implemented) While this doesn't seem like much it
actually would make a big difference in our total throughput. Every little bit
counts. There are probably some other less quantifiable benefits to removing the
extra testing like for example slightly decreasing the load on nova in an
already stressed environment like the gating nodes.

So I'd like to propose that we disable running the v3 API tests in the gate. I
was thinking we would keep the tests around in tree for as long as there was
a v3 API in any supported nova branch, but instead of running them in the gate
just have a nightly bit-rot job on the tests and also add it to the experimental

Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions about whether we should still be
running the v3 API tests on every commit?
