Hello When developing new features and modifying how things are implemented it would be very convenient to have a set of test cases to go through to systematically being able to detect if changes introduces regressions.
There currently are some 'make check'-test cases, but it is quite tedious to write these kinds of checks for e.g. the tools. If the author of e.g. a new tool would take some time to write a bunch of test cases it would help a lot for future developers that could use them to test wether their changes causes regressions. I've just started thinking about this and I thought I'd bring this up to discussion on the list. There are a couple of questions in particular I feel needs discussion: Is this a good idea? Where should the testcases be stored/managed? What format should they be in? Does anyone know of good tools to help with these kinds of things? I'm thinking we would store test-cases as simple version-controlled text documents in ./testcases or something? Perhaps doing that and then restructure things first when the need for a more strict structure arises?
