RE: Requiring python sqlite3 module for devs

Subversion 1.6 already required SQLite for fsfs repositories and Subversion
1.7 will require SQLite for the working copy. This question was about using
the python sqlite support in the test suite.


For Subversion itself building SQLite is as simple as downloading SQLite and
extracting the amalgamation file in the right directory. The Subversion
build will do the rest. (So you can assume the platform package frameworks
will include everything you need).

May I ask a simple question ?

Besides what already said this affect development and test.
Do this will affect any users using subversion ?
Do subversion need to download sqlite binary ?

We currently have a couple of tests which conditionally run if the
sqlite3 python module is found. ‚ As we move more working copy stuff
into sqlite, the number of tests that will be needed to be skipped
will increase, and the transparency of *why* they need to be skipped
will decrease. ‚ For this reason, I'd like to propose that we require
the python sqlite3 module be installed when running the tests.

The sqlite3 modules ships as part of Python 2.5, but we only require
Python 2.4. ‚ Most distributions which currently ship Python 2.4 either
ship the sqlite3 module, or provide a way to trivially install it.
For Windows users using Python 2.4 (such as the buildbot), binaries
can be obtained from [1].

Any objections to requiring the python sqlite3 module for running tests?
