This patch adds man pages for testing tools.
As far as I can see, we use autotools for installing man pages. I added
the autotools machinery to ipatests/man only. I'd appreciate if an
autotools expert could check if this approach is OK.
Or would it be better to not use autotools at all here?

Thanks for the review!

You don't have any man pages in section 8 so that can be removed from


You need to add a line break for the various ways to run the commands.

ipa-test-config [options]
ipa-test-config [options] --global
ipa-test-config [options] hostname

renders as

ipa-test-config   [options]    ipa-test-config    [options]    --global
ipa-test-config [options] hostname


ipa-test-config lacks a header.

Which header do you mean? I see the same header as on the other pages.

ipa-test-config doesn't say where the configuration is stored.

It is not stored anywhere; it's read from environment variables and
printed to stdout. I've clarified the description a bit.

ipa-test-task, in the install-topo description drop the word Please.


Almost none of the 72 options to ipa-run-test are documented in the man

These are taken from the "nosetests" command and documented in
nosetests(1). Also, the list can change depending on what plugins are
I think pointing the reader to nosetests(1) is enough.


It's a shame the test commands don't run in the tree.

Well, they will work in-tree if you set PYTHONPATH to the tree.

For example these work without the packages installed:
    PYTHONPATH=. ./ipatests/ipa-run-tests test_ipalib/test_config.py
    PYTHONPATH=. ./ipatests/ipa-test-task uninstall-all

You can also point the system-installed ipa-run-tests to in-tree tests.
You just need to use an absolute path because it changes the current
     ipa-run-tests `pwd`/ipatests/test_ipalib/test_config.py

ACK. Please correct the creation date in the man pages before pushing.


Thank you! Corrected & pushed.
