Re: autopkgtest'ing against multiple Python versions

How are you actually running the tests with adt-run. Did you actually
setup a testbed, or is there now an easy way to run the tests?
When you apply the patch from bug #648148, you can use your host system
as testbed. You run this in an unpacked (and built, if needed) source
adt-run ./ --- adt-virt-null
But since the patch breaks other (unrelated) things, and I found adt-run
rather user-unfriendly, and I couldn't easily understand its source
code, I ended up writing my own simplistic DEP-8 test runner:
The script depends on the following packages:
python (>= 2.7) | python-argparse,
Do you run the tests against the code installed via the .deb package
or on the code in the unpacked source?
The former. The specification reads: “the tests must test the INSTALLED
version of the program.”
