Re: Error in nitial Run of basic_tests.py

Hi Folks,

The earlier guidance was a great help. Specifically, this info from Daniel
on Apr 28:

> *_tests.py look by default for svn in ../../svn/svn --- i.e., build
> outputs. Are you running from a built source tree? If not, pass
> --bin=/usr/bin.

By using --bin=, I was able to run the tests successfully against my 1.6.15
installation.Daniel also informed me about the --help option. I suppose
that is a universal enough convention now in Subversion for this type of
script. However, as an old shell-script coder I was more used to "-h" or
just letting a script get chatty when wrong parameters are supplied.

Nico's posts (and Daniel's) on the subtleties of XFAIL are of interest,
because testing is probably going to be a big part of my job soon. I am
going to have to scan this thread a few more times before I fully
understand it.

Folks, I did try to study the testing READMEs and the info at
http://subversion.apache.org/docs/community-guide/building.html before I
posted here. I have recently Googled for sites that mention both
"basic_tests.py" and "man page", but without useful results.

If there's more in-depth documentation on basic_tests.py somewhere (besides
the script itself), I'd welcome some guidance here.

Many thanks,
Tom
