[SciPy-dev] the state of scipy unit tests
Sun Nov 23 20:56:55 CST 2008
In the past, I would always run 'nosetests scipy' before committing
changes to SVN. Due to the current state of the unit tests, I don't
anymore, and I suspect I'm not alone.
Here are the main offenders on my system:
I appreciate the fact that rigorous testing on this module takes time,
but 4 minutes on a 2.4GHz Core 2 system is unreasonable. IMO 20
seconds is a reasonable upper bound. Essential tests that don't meet
this time constraint should be filtered out of the default test suite.
Takes 2.5 minutes and litters my screen with a few hundred lines like,
deprecated conversion from
and dumps a bunch of .cpp and .so files in the current working directory.
Some minor offenders:
Emits several UserWarnings (should be filtered out with warnings.warnfilter).
A dozen lines like "zcopy:n=3"
Outputs ATLAS info and a dozen lines like "zcopy:n=3".
I'd like to be able to run the entire battery of tests in about a
minute with minimal unnecessary output.
