incorporate lvalertTest into standard LVAlert and GraceDb packaging
This is a migration of Redmine issue #4686.
Original Description (2015-09-27):
a testing suite for interactions with GraceDb via LVAlert has been developed in a personal github repo. The code should be moved into more standard packaging at some point.
The repo is available at https://github.com/reedessick/lvalertTest and provides several different interfaces and methods for testing follow-up analyses.
There's been no momentum for this since the ticket was opened. We can reopen it if there's interest, but in the interim, I'm going to close the ticket.
