Introduction

autopkgtest tests can be very easily integrated into existing source packages and easily test-run locally. http://packaging.ubuntu.com/html/auto-pkg-test.html shows how to easily get started with this kind of tests. Log in to #ubuntu-quality to ask questions and get help.

If you decide to work on one of the tests, please add @SIG@ behind the package in question and if you submitted a test-case for review already, you might want to add a link to it.

Required Tests

For the following packages we require autopkgtest tests.

simple compile/link/run tests

The idea here is to test if we can easily compile and link against these libraries and run some very basic code.

The following tests might serve as inspiration:

For these libraries we require tests:

functionality tests

The following packages don't have tests at all. It'd be great to let tests exercise the most common functionality and workflow (ie. for d-conf this might be: check reading, writing of schema keys, handling of invalid values for types, and schema creation/compilation, for a lens this might be: create a temporary home directory with some files, and check that these files are found).

valac (we support several versions with a metapackage, ensure that this pulls in everything required)

evince (autopilot: open a simple PDF, scroll through it, verify that it is displaying something)

eog (autopilot: open various kinds of images, change between them with mouse and cursor, verify that it is displaying something)

run upstream test suite against system installed packages

What we want to do here is to get the upstream test suite run as part of the autopkgtest.

This is what's done here as well: Example: ubiquity tests

For the following tests we want to run upstream test-suites:

review package for tests

The following packages could do with some tests but have not been reviewed to see if they have upstream tests yet; if they have something usable then enable the upstream tests; otherwise write some basic functional tests to exercise the package.
