This was definitely "solved" a couple of months ago, so it seems we don't really have any problems to start designing the testing framework. As for the implementation proposals, I would like to start doing something, if possible. Is there any information page or Wiki where we can write down some ideas and coordinate? Should I setup a new project at Alioth, so we can install some Wiki and start writing things? I also would like to collect opinions as to how the system should look like. My 2 cents, as I said, are that I think that all tests should be "integrated" somehow, so their execution method and output formats are the same. We already have that with DejaGNU, but I can understand that people don't like Tcl (I don't like it, either :-) ). I made a couple of random tests with the libtap format (Perl tests' output format), but I'm not sure they are the way to go. Anyhow, I would like to start some testing framework prototype, even if it's completely different from the one I already made... But, this time, I would like to know your opinions before starting another to-be-thrown-away testing framework prototype :-) Regards, -- Esteban Manchado Velázquez <firstname.lastname@example.org> EuropeSwPatentFree - http://EuropeSwPatentFree.hispalinux.es Help spread it through the Net in signatures, webpages, whatever!
