I actually don't think a dedicated interop plugin is a good idea. It doesn't
actually solve anything, because the tests are going to be the same and the
same people are going to be maintaining them. All you did was move it into a
different repo which solves none of the problems. What I was referring to was
exploring a more distributed approach to handling the tests (like what we did
for plugin decomposition for higher level services) That is the only way I see
us addressing the work overload problem. But, as I said before this is still
too early to talk about because there aren't defined new programs yet, just
the idea for them and a rough plan. We're still talking very much in the
abstract about everything...
