Great effort Edison, much needed!

How soon would it be in a shape to merge in master and have some wiki pages on it so we can
write tests using pytest than nose? It usually takes 12-15 mins on Travis to build CloudStack
and we split tests, so on Travis we would be able to run all simulator/integration tests in
less than 20 mins.

to merge pytest branch into master later. With a quick CI in hand, we then can start to think
about how to add gerrit into our system.
