source: branches/3.2/mindi-busybox/testsuite/TODO @ 3232

Last change on this file since 3232 was 821, checked in by bruno, 13 years ago

Addition of busybox 1.2.1 as a mindi-busybox new package
This should avoid delivering binary files in mindi not built there (Fedora and Debian are quite serious about that)

1This testsuite is quite obviously a work in progress.  As such,
2there are a number of good extensions.  If you are looking for
3something to do, feel free to tackle one or more of the following:
4
5Moving to the new format.
6    The old way was "lots of little tests files in a directory", which
7    doesn't interact well with source control systems.  The new test
8    format is command.tests files that use testing.sh.
9
10Every busybox applet needs a corresponding applet.tests.
11
12Full SUSv3 test suite.
13    Let's make the Linux Test Project jealous, shall we?  Don't just
14    audit programs for standards compliance, _prove_ it with a regression
15    test harness.

19Some tests need root access.
20    It's hard to test things like mount or init as a normal user.
21    Possibly User Mode Linux could be used for this, or perhaps
22    Erik's buildroot.
23
24libbb unit testing
25    Being able to test the functions of libbb individually may
26    help to prevent regressions.
