Tests for Specific Regressions
When we have a bug reported by end users that we can write a full stack reproduce on, we should. And we should keep a regression test for that bug in our tree. It can be deleted at some future date if needed, but largely should not be changed.
Writing Regression Tests
- These should be full stack tests which inherit from nova.test.TestCase directly. (This is to prevent coupling with other tests).
- They should setup a full stack cloud in their setUp via fixtures
- They should each live in a file which is named test_bug######.py
Writing Tests Before the Bug is Fixed
TODO describe writing and landing tests before the bug is fixed as a reproduce.
