But currently also it is same situation where some negative tests are
in tempest and some are in project repo either as functional tests or
Whenever we review new negative test patch, we have to check whether
that already exist in respective project or not if not then we can
consider it to add in tempest.
This could have valid if projects does not have any negative testing
in their tree and all reply on tempest tests for that.
Note- I am considering the surface level negative tests here, but yea
if that negative tests covers larger scope than just negative input
testing then, yes it should be in one place always.
