How is zc.buildout meant to have its tests  run?

It's a bit of a mess, because of bootstrapping issues.

On Mac OS X, in a checkout from svn+ssh://svn.zope.org/repos/main/ zc.buildout/trunk


$ python2.4 bootstrap/bootstrap.py
$ bin/buildout

For working on buildout, use dev.py rather than bootstrap.py.

results in:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] zc.buildout]$ bin/buildout
Develop: '/Users/chrism/projects/zc.buildout/zc.recipe.egg_'

Gah. I'm getting a similar error. This is a result of an attempt of mine to build multiple test runners at once, but it's too brittle. I've reverted back to a simpler configuration.

And doing:

$ python2.4 setup.py test -q

gives me a raft of test failures, which leads me to believe the tests weren't meant to be run this way.

They aren't. I added the associated setup arguments before I learned how they work,

What's the right way to run the test suite?

Make sure you svn up to get the latest configuration, then:

  python dev.py

Unfortunately there's a test failure in the rmtree module for me. I'll get after the author of that module.
