If you use zope.testing (which means pretty much everybody that uses a zope or plone buildout, for instance), I can recommend an upgrade to (at least) version 3.7.5, as it has some fixes, one of which is really handy: the -1 option works again.
From the changelog: the option REPORT_ONLY_FIRST_FAILURE (command line option “-1”) is now respected even when a doctest declares its own REPORTING_FLAGS, such as REPORT_NDIFF.
bin/test -1 stops at your first doctest error again. You don’t have to
wade through 15 pages of errors anymore to find that one error at the beginning that
caused it all.
