They have worked fine so far. I'll see how it'll go in the future. > > Are there other tests of the EDS API which I should run?

How do I detect failures? I just tried it on evolution-data-server and got e.g.: [...] Failed 48/662 tests, 92% okay Failed tests: 2/23 2/24 2/26 2/27 2/28 2/29 2/32 2/47 2/48 2/50 2/51 2/52 2/53 2/56 2/71 2/72 2/74 2/75 2/76 2/77 2/80 2/95 2/96 2/98 2/99 2/100 2/101 2/104 2/119 2/120 2/122 2/123 2/124 2/125 10/295 10/325 14/344 14/345 14/346 15/347 15/349 15/350 15/351 27/486 31/503 32/505 39/599 39/600 PASS: regression ================== All 1 tests passed ================== make: Leaving directory `/tmp/runtests/head/tmp/evolutiontrunk-build/evolution-data-server/calendar/libical/src/test' The "make check" at top level returned no error code. Looking at calendar/libical/src/test/regression.c I see that it always returns 0, so I guess I have to scan the log output to find failures, right? Are the failures above something that should be reported? To make regular testing useful failing tests either have to be skipped or fixed in a timely fashion. -- Bye, Patrick Ohly -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.estamos.de/ _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionemail@example.com http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
