We’re using nose to run our tests. Easy test discovery and so. So I also went after some existing internal libraries and simplified the test running there.
There were problems though with one library: the docstrings inside the python modules weren’t being run. In a similar setup in another library, everything was fine.
I googled some and found the answer on stackoverflow:
nose by default skips executable
And the files in that single library were executable for historical reasons…
Solution: pass the –exe option to nose and they’re not skipped anymore.
