To add here, this is stable for plugins which means we will take care of backward compatibility for any interface change in this file. 
Import path stays the same "from tempest.scenario import manager" [1]. We encourage each plugin to remove the copy of it
and start using it from the tempest.

Thanks, Soniya, Lukas, and Martin for working hard on this, this was a long-pending thing in Tempest.
