I've sent a fix for cinder-tempest-plugin, but I'd like to note that several 
packages (probably all tempest plugin) don't really use stestr, because they 
don't have unit/functional tests. They do define a base "testenv" tox 
environment which the others environment inherit from (pep8, etc), so maybe 
the dependency could be just removed (maybe we need some general guidance/
common patterns).
