Subject Release Testing
Date Tue, 04 Oct 2011 13:50:16 GMT

I was thinking about the tests that various folks (Konstantin, Mladen,
Rainer, etc.) perform and I was wondering if it might be a good idea for
everyone to share their techniques for testing that could be automated.

For example, contributing some scripts, etc. to a meta-test framework
for things like gpg signature tests, md5 sum tests, checks for ASF
references in source files, etc. It's possible that some of those tests
may fail in certain environments (e.g. coming from svn instead of
downloading the tarball you post) but not in others.

I would volunteer to assemble everything into a sort of test suite that
we could put into svn and have everyone run against their own local
copies in whatever environment they have. It would obviously include
things like "ant test" but also whatever automated checks folks have
hand-rolled as they have been testing release candidate builds.

Anyone who is interested, go ahead and reply to this thread and attach
whatever scripts you already have, or even ideas for things that /could/
be automated but you haven't actually done, yet.
