apart from these, I've started quite a few other modules too.
One problem I'm seeing is that, using OpenBSD's PostgreSQL testing
module (which I'm only just now getting aquainted with) is that I'm
having to patch the tests for get past the skip_all.
I'm not sure what you mean, here. Can you post a patch that you're applying?
They pass the tests
just fine, except that they both try to drop the test database while
it's still open.
Is this a local problem? Or a problem on a remote OpenBSD build server for ports?
I'll ask about this on the OpenBSD mailling list. I may be doing
something wrong. I want to be sure and test everything with the
database. Kind of important. :-}
You mean you're patching the modules to test *with* the database on some central build infrastructure? The tests that run against a database are marked AUTHOR_TESTS which means that they're only meant to be run by the developer (or maybe by the one doing the ports, which in this case would be you). I don't think it's generally good practice to promote an AUTHOR_TEST to a test being run on system installation.
Is there a kink in the test programs or am I just doing something wrong?
I can just patch things on the OpenBSD side, which is pretty commonly
needed. That's not a problem.
Well, I don't really know about the kink, but I'm wondering: is this problem you describe also a problem you experience when testing locally? If not, then you found your problem, I think.
I'll get back. Been working on things in spurts. Many modules started.
Now I'm working on finishing up on them one by one.
Very nice ! Hope you get through the list soon so we can see a release on OpenBSD soonish!
