Actually - as an easy first-step - set up a gate job with a devstack 
that has glare and no glance and run shade's functional tests against 
it. We're pretty darned lenient - if you can pass our functional tests 
then talking about stricter things like tempest is worthwhile. If you 
can't - hopefully there will be some clear areas to work on.
