Bug#571471: ITP: pytest-xdist -- xdist plugin for py.test (a.k.a. codespeak-lib)

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Adam Schmalhofer <Adam.Schmalhofer@gmx.de>

* Package name    : pytest-xdist
  Version         : 1.1
  Upstream Author : holger krekel <holger at merlinux eu>
* URL             : http://bitbucket.org/hpk42/pytest-xdist
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: Python
  Description     : xdist plugin for py.test (a.k.a. codespeak-lib)

This used to be part of python-codespeak-lib, but has been seperated
from it in 1.2.0.

The pytest-xdist plugin extends py.test with some unique test execution

 * Looponfail:
     Run your tests repeatedly in a subprocess. After each run py.test
     waits until a file in your project changes and then re-runs the
     previously failing tests. This is repeated until all tests pass
     after which again a full run is performed.

 * Load-balancing:
     if you have multiple CPUs or hosts you can use those for a combined
     test run. This allows to speed up development or to use special
     resources of remote machines.

 * Multi-Platform coverage:
     you can specify different Python interpreters or different
     platforms and run tests in parallel on all of them.

Before running tests remotely, py.test efficiently synchronizes your
program source code to the remote place. All test results are reported
back and displayed to your local test session. You may specify different
Python versions and interpreters.
