Default FYI: Changes to virtinst test suite

Hi all,

I've added some changes to the virtinst test suite that will affect
anyone writing patches. Two commands have been added to the setup.py script:

python setup.py check : runs a pylint wrapper against the

codebase
python setup.py test_urls: runs a url fetching test suite

A patch shouldn't change the output of 'check'. If you hit something
which you think is a false positive or an unnecessary check, bring it up
on the list (though I've tried to remove all the blatantly useless
checks already). 'check' uses the pylint utility.

'test_urls' only needs to be run if changes are against the url fetching
code (virtinst/OSDistro and some virtinst/Distromanager). It takes a
while to run and requires a network connection, so I didn't include it
as part of the regular test suite ('setup.py test', which should also be
run with any changes).

All the above info was added to a HACKING file as well. I'll also be
adding a similar pylint script to virt-manager in the near future.

Thanks,
Cole

Cool thing! Would it make sense to release a new version? Hg acquired
quiet some new features and bugfixes, so I'd probably make sense. Having
virtinst release more often would help distros to get the new stuff out
quicker.

Completely agreed on releasing more often: the huge lapse between the
previous two releases was no good. I think pushing new virtinst +
virt-manager in a couple weeks would be fine, there are still a couple
other things I'd like to pick off until then. Going forward, my goal is
to have an actual schedule, and transparency wrt planned features,
timelines, etc.

Thanks,
Cole
