[openstack-dev] [horizon][plugins] Horizon plugins validation on CI

Hi all,

We discussed this topic at PTG both with Horizon and other teams. Sounds
like everybody is interested to have some cross-project CI jobs to verify
that plugins are not broken with the latest Horizon changes.

The initial idea was to use tempest plugins for this effort like we do for
Horizon [1]. We've got a very simple test to verify that Horizon is up and
running and a user is able to login.

It's easy to implement such tests for any existing horizon plugin. I tried
it for Heat and Manila dashboards.

If I understand correctly how tempest plugins work, for such case we've got
such options:

a) to create the same tempest plugins for each plugin - it this case, we
need to maintain new repos for tempest plugins
b) add these tests to Horizon tempest plugin - in such case, it will be
harder for plugin maintainers to support these tests.

If we don't want to go forward with tempest plugins, we can create similar
tests based on Horizon functional tests.

I want to get more feedback both from Horizon and plugins teams on which
direction we should go and start implementation.
