Subject Re: [VOTE] Re: regression test suite naming convention
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2007 16:11:22 GMT
FWIW, option 3 makes more sense to me.

It could be enhanced though in the light of Martin's reply to Mark: some 
tests do not cleanly apply to a section. In which case option 3 can be 
enhanced to place such tests in the regress dir w/o a section number.
