During the Buildroot Developers meeting at ELCE 2017, we discussed how
to make test-pkg more usable for our contributors. Our idea is that
test-pkg should not test all toolchains by default, but only a smaller
subset of "interesting" toolchains, that exhibit the most common
problems we encounter with new packages.
This series does that by:
- Adjust the toolchain CSV file to have the interesting toolchains
first, adding comments and empty lines along the way to clarify
what is going on.
- Update test-pkg to test only the first 7 toolchains, add a --all
option to test all toolchains, and a --number option to test only
the first N toolchains.
- Update the Buildroot manual accordingly.
Changes since v1:
- Drop the first two patches, since they have been merged.
- In the CSV list of toolchains, add better comments to explain the
two "sections" of the toolchain list, as suggested by Yann
- In the test-pkg script changes themselves:
- Keep alphabetic sorting in the definition of the 'o' variable that
contains the list of short options. Suggested by Yann E. Morin. 'h'
for help remains a special case and therefore remains at the first
- Keep alphabetic sorting when handling options. Here as well, --help
remains first, as it already was. Suggested by Yann E. Morin.
- Use spaces and not tabs for indentation. Suggested by Yann E. Morin.
