Can you please clarify - does FF apply to tempest *tests*?  My assumption
was that we could move from feature development to testing during the FF/RC
phase of the cycle, the natural by-product of which will be additional
tempest testcases..

Yeah, we have a list of wishlist bugs so we can track the additional
less-trivial tests we'd like to implement:


I was hoping we'd get patches at least proposed for most of these before
Icehouse ships, but we'll have to see how it goes.. :)

Steve Baker can make the final decision, but I am +2 on turning it on -
during the process of getting my instance-users patches through the gate,
this test consistently found real issues with no false positives (other
than those caused by other known bugs).
