I've heard good things about automated testing tool tox: http://codespeak.net/~hpk/tox/
It runs unit tests automatically, supports integration testing etc. Try it out and include it in gensim.
The goal is to automatically check that dependencies (old version of numpy & scipy, old python 2.5) still work.
re #61: using `tox` for automated testing
* use one recent environment (py2.7 + latest numpy and scipy)
* plus one oldest supported env (py2.5 + numpy 1.3 + scipy 0.7)
* tox doesn't support scipy as dependency, so the deps are pre-installed in their respective site-packages
updated gensim dependencies
* numpy < 1.3 no longer works, because gensim uses `mmap_mode` in numpy.load()
* all tox tests pass now
* closes #61
