Heh, yeah what's a test harness without tests?
I struggling with whether the tests are a separate entity or considered
part of the test harness. Should the tests be usable by themselves, or
will they all %require STAF (or similar test harness)?
I think of them as separate. I'm assuming they would live in a separate
source control from the harness.
I think we should continue the existing model where a test can be run
locally with a helper script installed while also be deployable in
larger environment driven automatically by a test harness without
requiring any changes to the test. That seems like a win-win to me.
