I asked on both IRC channels and got no response, so trying here instead:

Does anyone know how to use multiple namespaces with checkbox-ng?

I have a provider based on the server-cert provider.  The current published
version of this provider uses the same namespace as the checkbox provider
and works pretty well.

However, the experimental version of this has been changed to use a
different namespace.  Now trying to run the experimental version fails with
some errors about a missing dependencies.

Shows the console output I get when running the new version.  keep in mind
this is the ONLY change I've made:

-    name='',
+    name='',
     description=N_("OpenCompute Certification provider"),
-    gettext_domain="2013_com_canonical_certification_opencompute-testing",

which just changes the namespace from the Canonical one to an OCP one.

I have a feeling I will need to change the whitelists to test plan units to
make this work so I can call the resource stuff by the canonical namespace,
but I wanted to check here before I dived in that deeply.

So am I at least on the right track?  Has ANYONE actually used separate
namespaces on plainbox providers?
