slapos-testing: rework to use buildout to install eggs and dependencies
Instead of letting `python setup.py test` install the depencies, use buildout way of installing the eggs. This software use `interpreter` recipe of `zc.recipe.egg` to install a python with all eggs pre-installed. This is a way to get all the dependencies. `erp5.util.testsuite` has been extended to support a parameter to specify which python to use. This cause chicken and egg problem because cloning repository containing `slapos.recipe.cmmi` needs git, and to compiling git needs `slapos.recipe.cmmi`. The consequence of this is that re-running software will install too many parts again. One solution for this would be to clone `slapos.recipe.cmmi` with a `git` command provided by testnode or system package. For now this is open issue. Another solution would be to not install `slapos.recipe.cmmi` develop egg, simply install the egg from it's current pypi version while installing the software (running tests will be from the git checkout anyway). Another point of attention is that `python setup.py test` install the requirements listed in `test_requires`, but `zc.recipe.egg` does not provide a way of installing these. Some of our packages have `[test]` entrypoints, in this case, the software installs the test entrypoints. For others, we install the eggs. Other improvements: * use a simple `slapos.recipe:wrapper` instead of `slapos.cookbook:egg_test` * fix the typo in repository name erp5-util-repository -> erp5.util-repository ( this mean we will have to fix the test suites in nexedi ERP5 ) * document "what is this software" and a scenario of how this software can be used to develop slapos eggs. * switch to buildout-hash.cfg for easier template hash management.
