Project:PMS test suite
|Package Manager Specification test suite|
|Description||The PMS test suite project aims to develop and maintain a comprehensive test suite to check the compliance of a particular Package Manager with the PMS.|
|Parent Project||Package Manager Specification|
Historically, there were many cases whenever the behavior of a particular Package Manager didn't follow the PMS spec. In worst case, this resulted in a growing number of ebuilds which relied on the incorrect behavior and caused trouble for users of other Package Managers.
The PMS test suite project aims to provide a comprehensive solution to avoid such a mistakes in the future. It is supposed to provide a set of tests against various aspects of the PMS, and a means to run these tests using any Package Manager.
The PMS test suite project has been started as a 2011 GSoC project. It can be found in the gentoo package tree as app-portage/pms-test-suite.
