tl;dr; As per a discussion in Paris [1], development of Neutron's
API tests is moving from the Tempest repo to the Neutron repo.
If you are developing API tests for Neutron in Tempest, please be
advised that, effective immediately, your efforts should be
directed towards the Neutron repo.

The current set of Neutron API tests in Tempest has been
copied (along with supporting infrastructure) to
neutron/tests/tempest [1].  Tests in this path are run as part of
the neutron-dsvm-api job, which will shortly be gating [2].  Test
changes that previously targeted the tempest/api/network path in
the Tempest repo should target neutron/tests/tempest/network/api
in the Neutron repo until further notice.

Automatic conversion from a Tempest change to a Neutron change is

 - cd [path to neutron repo]
 - ./tools/copy_api_tests_from_tempest.sh [path to tempest working directory]

As per the Tempest guidelines for test removal [3], the tests
currently in Tempest will remain in Tempest and continue to run
as part of the existing jobs until we can target tests in the
Neutron repo against stable branches and enable the use of the
in-repo tests by defcore/refstack.

Finally, guidelines for API test development in the Neutron repo are
in the works and will be proposed shortly.  The guidelines will
define policy intended to protect against backwards compatible
changes to our API.
