Regression testsuite framework has been changed and a new way of executing the 
testcases has been written. How to add new testcases or execute the existing 
testcases is explained below.

1. Adding new testcases:
In the regression repository cloned 
(git clone git:// there is a directory named dvm 
which contains the directories after bugid. In each of those directories the 
testcase pertaining to that bugid is added. Thus to add a new testcase for a 
bug (say 2455), a directory named 2455 is created inside the dvm directory 
and the testcase is written inside 2455 directory.

Testcase pattern should be as below:

         source .regression_helpers
         whole testcase goes here
         exit $?

the script is exited with the return value of the last command (which should do 
the checking for the correct working of the functionality being checked).

Set executable permission on the testcase.
If the testcase requires mounting then it can be done using following functions.
a) FUSE: mount_glusterfs <volume name> 
b) NFS: mount_nfs <volume_name>

2. Executing the testcase:
The repository contains a file called which should be executed with the 
path to glusterd binary being checked as the mandatory argument. The second 
argument to the script which is the bug id to be tested is optional. 
If a bug id is given as the argument, then only that bugid is tested, 
otherwise all the bugs present in the dvm directory are tested.

./ <path_to_glusterd> 2455 -> executes the testcase for the bug 2455. 
./ <path_to_glusterd> -> executes all the testcases inside dvm directory.
./ show -> shows the testcases present in dvm directory.

See to it that glusterd is not running before running the script since 
starting glusterd and other things are taken care by the script itself. 
If glusterd is already running while script is being executed, 
then the script informs the same and exits.

NOTE: There is a file called regression_testcase_sample in the repository. 
Please refer it for any doubts. 2-3 Testcases have already been added, 
hence they can be refered too.

NOTE: While creating the volumes in the testcase please create the volumes 
with the bugid only (there is a variable call global_bug_id exported 
by regression_helpers function) so that volume name will be unique 
(unless the testcase itself is to try volume creation with specific name).

3. Sending the patches:
git add <folder_name>
git commit -a (Add a description to the patch which you are sending.)
git format-patch -M -1

Mail the patch to, ccing it to
