Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-683) implement notion of expected failures in the test suite
Date Fri, 21 Dec 2007 04:25:43 GMT

Martin Sebor commented on STDCXX-683:
-------------------------------------

I left these out on purpose, but on second thought I agree that XFMAT should be added. I don't
think XNOUT makes sense because NOUT is an expected state for regression tests and would unexpected
for any other kind.

> Tests (or examples) that fail for known reasons that we haven't been able to deal with
should be distinguished from failures that haven't been analyzed yet. For example, an example
program that fails to compile on an older target platform because of a compiler bug that we
can't find a simple/elegant workaround should be flagged as such in the test results. Similarly,
a test that fails one or more assertions due to compiler or libc bugs on a specific platform
(or a set of platforms) that we are unable to work around should be reported as such.
> This is important in order to reduce the currently fairly large number of unexpected
failures and to be able to make changes without having to worry about regressions as much.
