Hi Matthew,

Now we are discussing how to handle v3 API tests of Tempest on a
nova-specs review[2], and the tests are still necessary at this
time before getting a conclusion.

How about disabling Nova v2 XML API tests instead of v3 API tests?
Now v2 XML support is deprecated and I think we can disable them:
