In this recent thread:
some of you expressed the desire to be able to have extra/longer unit
tests in their package, with these tests being run on a regular basis
by our build machines.
To address this, we've started the "long tests" builds:
Any software package can participate to these builds. To participate
you need to:
1) Subscribe your package.
To subscribe, add a .BBSoptions file to the top-level folder of
your package source tree with the following line in it:
2) Create the longtests/ folder in the top-level folder of your
package source tree and put tests in it, just like you would
do with the tests/ folder.
The "long tests" builds will run 'R CMD check --test-dir=longtests'
once a week (every Saturday) and thus will run the tests located in
the longtests/ folder. The results will get published here:
The maximum allowed time for the tests to complete is 6h. If they
take more, they get interrupted and a TIMEOUT is reported. Keep in
mind that 'R CMD check' is run with the --force-multiarch option on
Windows. This means that tests are executed twice on this platform,
once with R running in 32-bit mode, and once with R running in 64-bit
mode. The 6h limit is for the total time of the 'R CMD check' command.
Just to clarify, the daily software packages aren't changed: they
still run the tests located in the tests/ folder and the TIMEOUT
limit is still 40 min.
Feedback/questions/comments are welcome.
