Testing for new drivers in Kilo release
We've implemented a simple wrapper around the tempest volume.api tests at https://github.com/openstack-dev/devstack/tree/master/driver_certs . The process currently is for each vendor to run this test against their backend driver in their own environment. The wrapper is very simple, it just does a fresh clone of the cinder and tempest repos and restarts services, then runs the tempest volume.api tagged tests in the tempest suites and collects the output to a temporary log file. Once you have a log file, create a cinder launchpad bug and attach the log to it. Post a comment to your driver's gerrit review with a link to the bug.
Testing for drivers merged before Kilo release
Deadline for drivers merged before Kilo to have a CI is end of k-2 (5th of Feb 2015) - Discussion regarding this here
To be designated as compatible, a third-party plugin and/or driver code must implement external third party testing. The testing should be Tempest executed against a Devstack build with the proposed code changes. The environment managed by the vendor should be configured to incorporate the plugin and/or driver solution. The OpenStack Infrastructure team has provided details on how to integrate 3rd party testing at:
and Tempest can be found at:

When thirdparty CI voting will be required
Once third party CI's become more common and stable, we'll revisit the subject. For now you can review the discussion on the decision.
