Testing Sprint in Paris
by d hubler
I started working with Rok and Charlie about code coverage using phpcoverage. Talked w/Andy Kirkham about using straight xdebug instead. Ultimately testing.drupal.org will probably go w/xdebug directly but Andy and Kevin Bridges probably know more about that.
Jimmy mentioned there wasn't a lot of work left on functional tests to do. I was waiting for code coverage analysis to see if there where holes in the test coverage. In the meanwhile, I investigated using runkit and mock-functions and started talked with Jimmy about it, but shortly after Károly showed up. Károly proposed a different approach to runkit, it wasn't clear that he wanted me to help, he got a little upset when he found out I wasn't. (Sorry Károly, wasn't intentional)
I made a small contribution to run the functional tests from CLI, then mostly provided feedback by running the tests on my local system about which tests were failing.
I did come away with a mission though and created a project
I still think mock-function show a lot of promise. Thread here related to that.
And immediately got started working with Aaron Stewball on Google code project for mock-functions which I'm excited about.
Also I'm not found of the decision to fork simpletest for Drupal, an entirely separate issue. I hope that eventually works out.
I evangelized the simpletest eclipse plugin with Roel De Meester who was there for the DrupalCamp, but was nice enough to help out the testing sprint. We showed each other a few tricks with eclipse. I emailed a bit with Steven Balthazor who created the simpletest eclipse plugin, shortly after he posted this email
which talked about a whole new plugin better integrated with PDT
So I got involved in a number of projects, I guess part of settling in with Drupal is finding your spot in the Drupal cloud that you find important, I made great progress toward that :)
