Pacakge install/uninstall QA using pbuilder; current status
I've been idling for a while, and maybe some people didn't notice
what is happening or possible with pbuilder; so I will try to explain
pbuildd with install testing was running sometime in 2004,
and after running it extensively we had several machine hangs,
and I didn't like it really.
I've put it up public in
since I noticed that it was apparently not being released.
It should be included in the next pbuilder source tarball as an example.
It uses the pbuilder execute script found in examples/execute_installtest.sh
to do the real work, and just loops around it.
There was some work by someone about visualizing the results, but I cannot
remember the current status.
examples/B92test-pkg hook may be interesting, since it will try
installing and upgrading after building the package.
new pbuilder package will be uploaded when may new key enters the
