[PATCH] selftest: allow '-R' and '-r' be used together


Chen Qi
 

For now, there's no easy way to skip some specified tests when
using 'oe-selftest -r'. This is because '-R' and '-r' are in the
mutually exclusive group. Looking at the codes, the codes have already
allowed running specified tests and skipping specified tests at
the same time. So move '-R' out of the mutually exclusive group
and change its help message.

After this change, the following command could be used.
oe-selftest -r A -R A.B.C

This does introduce a behavior regression.
Previous 'oe-selftest -R xxx' needs to now be changed to
'oe-selftest -a -R xxx'.

Hi Alexandre,

Yes, I'm aware of this behavior regression.
With this patch, 'oe-selftest -R xxx' needs to be changed to 'oe-selftest -a -R xxx'.

I'm not sure if this is useful for other people. Because how people use oe-selftest is unknown to me.
For me, I want to run something like 'oe-selftest -r A -R A.B.C'.

Regards,
Qi

Hi Alexandre,

The command line is: oe-selftest --skip-tests distrodata.Distrodata.test_checkpkg buildoptions.SourceMirroring.test_yocto_source_mirror reproducible -T machine -T toolchain-user -T toolchain-system -j 15

The '--skip-tests' option is the long format of '-R'.

Qi

The autobuilder is not running "all" tests though, it is running two

Hi Richard,

The AB is actually running 'all' tests.

The '--skip-tests (-R)' option means 'Run all (unhidden) tests except the ones specified.', according to its help message. This is also its actual effect for now. You can see there's an implicit 'run all tests' meaning in this option.
The '-T (--exclude-tag)' options means 'Exclude all (unhidden) tests that match any of the specified tag(s)', according to its help message.

So the AB's oe-selftest command means: execute all tests except the ones tagged with 'machine' and 'toolchain-user', and also skip 'distrodata.Distrodata.test_checkpkg buildoptions.SourceMirroring.test_yocto_source_mirror reproducible'.

Regards,
Qi

You're right, a different build has -t machine and I'm confusing the
two, sorry.

I don't really like making changes which require lockstep changes to
the autobuilder configuration but I can see why we could do with doing
so here.

I was thinking there should be symettry between -r and -R like there is
with -T and -t but that also probably doesn't make sense when you think
about it more.

Alex: We'll probably have to work out how to make this change...

So the AB's oe-selftest command means: execute all tests except the
ones tagged with 'machine' and 'toolchain-user', and also skip
'distrodata.Distrodata.test_checkpkg
buildoptions.SourceMirroring.test_yocto_source_mirror reproducible'.
You're right, a different build has -t machine and I'm confusing the
two, sorry.
I don't really like making changes which require lockstep changes to
the autobuilder configuration but I can see why we could do with doing
so here.
I was thinking there should be symettry between -r and -R like there is
with -T and -t but that also probably doesn't make sense when you think
about it more.
Alex: We'll probably have to work out how to make this change...
Nudge and Happy Holidays.

The AB is actually running 'all' tests.

The '--skip-tests (-R)' option means 'Run all (unhidden) tests except
the ones specified.', according to its help message. This is also its
actual effect for now. You can see there's an implicit 'run all
tests' meaning in this option.
The '-T (--exclude-tag)' options means 'Exclude all (unhidden) tests
that match any of the specified tag(s)', according to its help
message.

Yes, this is still on my radar.
