[openstack-dev] [Heat] Decoupling Heat integration tests from Heat tree

Hi all,

following IRC discussion here is a summary of what I propose can be done in
this regard, in the order of increased decoupling:

1) make a separate requirements.txt for integration tests and modify the
tox job to use it. The code of these tests is pretty much decoupled
already, not using any modules from the main heat tree. The actual
dependencies are mostly api clients and test framework. Making this happen
should decrease the time needed to setup the tox env and thus speed up the
test run somewhat.

2) provide separate distutils' setup.py/setup.cfg to ease packaging and
installing this test suit to run it against an already deployed cloud
(especially scenario tests seem to be valuable in this regard).

3) move the integration tests to a separate repo and use it as git
submodule in the main tree. The main reasons not to do it as far as I've
collected are not being able to provide code change and test in the same
(or dependent) commits, and lesser reviewers' attention to a separate repo.

What do you think about it? Please share your comments.

Best regards,
