Bug#781189: ITP: lift -- Integration and functional testing framework

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Nicolas Delvaux <contact@nicolas-delvaux.org>

* Package name    : lift
  Version         : 2.0.0
  Upstream Author : Nicolas Delvaux <contact@nicolas-delvaux.org>
* URL             : https://github.com/Malizor/lift
* License         : GPL-2+
  Programming Lang: Python3
  Description     : Integration and functional testing framework

Lift provides an integration/functional test platform which handles executable
tests easily and generically.

 * Lift only deals with executables and their return code
   - A particular test can be written in the language that fit it the most
 * Test declaration in a simple YAML syntax
   - No need to learn a programming language to integrate a test in a suite
 * Easily declare a test as running locally or on a remote machine
 * Remote tests: upload needed assets automatically and cleanup afterward
 * Naturally organize a test suite in multiple sub-folders/sub-test suites
 * Easily run a sub-test suite or specific tests from the command line
 * Pass environment variables to tests
 * Inheritance of remotes and environment across sub-test suites
   - For example, remotes can be defined in the top folder and used below
 * Only one command to run all or specific tests: lift

Lift was initially developed for internal QA needs at my job but it was designed
to be generally useful.
There are a lot of testing framework out there, but I didn't find one like
Lift (mainly, not focused on a specific programming language and local/remote
tests facilities).

For now, all real-world Lift test-suites that I know of are not public.
Hopefully this will change when the project will be better known.

As I'm not a DD, I will need a sponsor.
