WebTest isn’t quite what you’re talking about, but does provide a way to talk to a WSGI app from within a test suite rather simply. Can you expand a little on why “declarative” tests are better suited for this than the more usual sorts of tests we write? I definitely don’t think the ceilometer team should build something completely new for this without a lot more detail in the spec about which projects on PyPI were evaluated and rejected as not meeting the requirements. If we do need/want something like this I would expect it to be built within the QA program. I don’t know if it’s appropriate to put it in tempestlib or if we need a completely new tool.
