Patterns for Testing Debian Packages
Speaker: Antonio Terceiro
Track: Packaging, policy and infrastructure
Type: Talk (45 mins)
Time: Aug 08 (Tue), 18:00
This talk is based in a paper I have published where I describe a pattern language (as in “design patterns”) for automated software testing in production-like environments (a.k.a autopkgtest/DEP8 for us Debian people). The patterns describe common problems and solutions for testing Debian packages, and should be useful for maintainers willing to add tests to their packages.
