Hi all,

I wondered if anyone was interested in creating a black-box test suite
for bzr-gtk?

I'm the author of PyUseCase which is a PyGTK testing tool which has
become mature pretty recently, and I'm hoping a few larger projects
will try it out. I downloaded bzr-gtk and started trying to create
tests and it seemed to go pretty smoothely with the few things I tried
out. Would be happy to help get it off the ground if there was

It's a bit different to most other GUI test tools. To give you a
flavour, I created this test for annotation against a minimal Bazaar

view options for olive file file2.txt
annotate file
view detail diff for line 1
close bzrk diff window
close annotate window
close olive

which created some output which I've attached. The idea then is to
monitor future changes to a filtered version of this auto-generated
output. The only changes I needed to make in the code to do this were
to call set_name on a couple of TreeView widgets.

There's a tutorial which explains how I did this at
