Bug Description

The development guidelines page ( don't have enough setup detail for running tests.

Step one on this page should be (a reference to) how to set up a dev environment ( At that point, all scripts and dependencies should "just work".

In addition to the reference to how to properly set up a dev environment, this page should also have information on how to set up the testing dependencies. That is, someone looking for how to run functional tests should find this page and be able to run the tests, including instructions that upgrade packages to get around the pip/setuptools/pbr errors around not understanding the requirements.txt file[1].
