Description Patrick Dawson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-03 19:26:10 UTC
A new stable version of cppunit is available. Simply copying the current ebuild (1.8.0) worked for me.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Created attachment 34749 [details]

Here's some C++ code to test basic CppUnit functionality. Extract the archive
and use to compile and run the code. It should produce one "OK" and one
assertion failure.

Hi Patrick.

Thanks for the notification!
I have committed the update, please test and report.

I see that you included some test cases. I am not really sure whether they should be included at this level. We do not have a particular policy for or against test cases other that "to go with the upstream". The rationale is that I am not in the best position to jubdge correctness or completeness of the tests you supplied and so this should preferrably be left to the developer[s] of the package. That is to say, I think the correct way to go about these tests would be to submit them upstream, so that they get added to the package. Since you are the author of these tests I think the prerogative of doing so lies with you in this particular instance ;) (to the contrary of our usual policy of gentoo devs going upstream).

In short, I am going to close this bug with just the update performed but without tests added. If you feel that this is an important addition, please feel free to contact cppunit people. If you think it is vital that Gentoo has it right now, before it goes upstream, please reopen the bug and explain why.

Thanks for your involvement!

Comment 3 Patrick Dawson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-07-30 16:33:26 UTC
Nope, I just included the tests so that you (or anyone else) could just do a quick CppUnit test to make sure the package was installed properly, etc. Marking closed.

works perfect for me
