Bug Description

Zaqar currently uses ddt for data driven tests. Other projects throughout OpenStack are using testscenarios. It'd be nice to evaluate a possible migration to testscenarios.

I'm in favor of re-purposing this bug report towards comparing ddt to testscenarios, and exposing the benefits and disadvantages of each.

Marconi currently uses ddt to great effect, in my opinion.

Let's push back on this - why are we reinventing the wheel? TBH, I think it behooves OpenStack to be a good member of the broader Python ecosystem, contributing upstream to things like ddt when it makes sense.

Is this something we still want to do? Someone willing to do this? What would it mean to move away from ddt?

More projects now use ddt. Do we still need this?
