Many thanks for the ideas and work you put in manuel! > I'm interested in any feedback and/or questions you may have be it > technical, documentation, or "marketing" (i.e., how do I describe what > Manuel does and what benefits it has). I have a technical comment: If you want to use manuel for writing some test logic that works region by region (which I suspect is a rather standard use case), you have to do some boilerplate wiring that involves iterating over region and making sure that you really only evaluate matching regions and format your own results. It would be nice to have a way to create a Manuel object from just some matching expressions and code that applies to a single example. To see what I mean, you might take a look at tl.testing (the cairo module). The code there is split up into testing logic that compares cairo surfaces to images of the expectations (the Test and Result classes) and a Manuel class that just ties it all up. To have something like that Manuel class provided by the manuel package would be quite helpful. That module also defines its own doc file suite, mainly in order to have a test suite factory with all the features of the standard (or rather, zope.testing) doc test suite. To have a more elaborate doc file suite available from manuel would also be good. -- Thomas _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
