*Yaroslav*, thank you for raising the question, I realy like this feature,
I discussed this script with several people during the OpenStack summit in
Paris and heard many the same things - we need to have something like this
to execute tempest tests automatically for validation of different
production and test OpenStack clouds - it is real pain to create our own
separate scripts for each project / team which will configure Tempest for
some specific configurations / installations, because tempest configuration
file can be changed and we will need to update our scripts.

We need to discuss, first of all, what we need to change in this script
before this script will be merged.
As I can see, the spec description [1] not fully meet the current
implementation [2] and the spec looks really general - probably we can
describe separate 'simple' spec for this script and just abandon the
current spec or update the spec to sync spec and this script?

*David*, we found many issues with the current version of script, many
tempest tests failed for our custom OpenStack configurations (for example,
with and without Swift or Ceph) and we have our own scripts which already
can solve the problem. Can we join you and edit the patch together? (or we
can describe our ideas in the comments for the patch).

Also, looks like we need review from Tempest core team - they can write
more valuable comments and suggest some cool ideas for the implementation.
