Automatically create negative tests out of schemas

Registered by Marc Koderer on 2013-11-11

The number of negative tests are steady growing in tempest. Most of them are quite simple and just test a single argument with flawed input. This blueprint will use schemas to make it possible to express tests like we have in a declarative manner and to auto-generate negative tests as well. There is another blueprint that addresses moving the current negative tests into separate files: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/tempest/+spec/negative-test-files.
