We don't really need a blueprint for this work. It would be good to know
what gaps in existing testing you think exist. And where do you plan on
implementing these tests? In the nova/tests/functional tree or somewhere
else? We already have a lot of tests which are using a CellDatabase
fixture which allow us to create multiple cell mappings for tests in the
If you're considering Tempest, tests there wouldn't really be
appropriate because to the end user of the API, they should have no idea
if they are talking to a cloud with multiple cells or not, since it's
really a deployment issue.
What we don't have today in our CI testing, and that we need someone to
