How to test

So, you want to help us testing tomb: great.

How can you do it? It depends on 1) what you want to test 2) what _distro_ you use / how skilled are you

In tomb sources extras/test the directory contains test units for Tomb.

Run make to go through all test units, this will try various operations with tomb and return a list of success or failures.

Bleeding edge

The devs are writing some new feature, and you want to help them testing it. In this situation, there is not a stable release you can refer to. Instead, you'll have to refer to the git user/branch which has the code you want to test. It could be in the "main" branch (that is: user=dyne, branch=master) or in a specific branch of some user (example: user=boyska, branch=optparsing)

Archlinux

The AUR contains tomb-git package. You can install it with yaourt -S tomb-git, and it will install the "main" development branch (user=dyne, branch=master). If you want to use a specific branch, you can just edit the PKGBUILD in the lines that say

#You can customize _gituser and _gitbranch to test specific developer's repo
_gituser="dyne"
_gitbranch="master"
changing _gituser and _gitbranch according to your needs.

Now, you can test tomb!
