Due to recent discussions around Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) and their testing in OpenStack thinking was started to take what Intel NFV 3rd party CI  runs at this moment and merge some/all into upstream Tempest. Currently intel-nfv-ci-tests is a Tempest plugin   and it's running on all Nova changes , sample . Merging them with upstream Tempest would give testing environments an option to turn them on with a flip of a switch in tempest.conf rather than pip install + tempest run with all-plugin (to enable site_packages).
While some of them may be easier from technical stand point (hugepages) some of them may not be possible in cloud providers used by OpenStack Infra.
Both options: Tempest plugin, upstream Tempest have pros and cos and we'd like to get broader community to comment on that.
