Migrate Fuel-QA from python proboscis and nosetest to modern test frameworks

Registered by Dmitry Tyzhnenko on 2015-11-09

Today the system tests in fuel-qa project uses outdated test framework like the proboscis and the nosetest. Both are not supported anymore. Last commit into proboscis was at 14 Nov 2013 [1]. Nosetest has no maintainer last several years and official documentation recommends use other tools [2].

Nose documentation [2] recommends use pytest, nose2 or unittest2. We should check them and make decision which of them can help us to solve our tasks
