Testing Standards

Start collecting info for testing standards here:

Things we'd like to standardize in open source testing:

  • test nomenclature (test glossary)
  • how to specify test pre-requisites
    • ex: assert_define ENV_VAR_NAME
    • ex: kernel_config
  • test API
  • host/target abstraction
    • kernel installation
    • file operations
    • console access
    • command execution
  • test retrieval, build, deployment
    • test execution:
      • ex: 'make test'
  • test log output format
  • test package format
    • meta-data for each test
    • test results
    • baseline expected results for particular tests on particular platforms
    • what tests can be skipped etc.
