unfortunately not much.
I have much of it in bits and pieces, though. (nothing in python yet)
mostly worked after the functionality of andrews test shell scripts,
but improved in syntax and line noise as well as usability and
flexibility (all in bash). and the bash part of the CTH (the drbd
test thingy I wrote in perl and bash flavours).
Andrew and lmb have a almost recent version of parts of it.
It "just" needs to be put together, and tested,
and then test cases/scenarios have to be scripted.
my flight leaves early tomorrow, I'll be reading email again next
weekend. my sister will give me their computer room as guest room, so
while I stay there, I should have plenty of opportunity to hack on this.
I have no idea yet what else will distract me there, but I expect things
to be useable by "not-me"s end of this month.
then it should be in cvs, too.
And indeed, the "automatic configuration" part of whatever test we want
to run with v2 is probably best done with some additional configuration tool,
a number of config templates, and a simple file with a list of templates
to use for this test run.
Yes, this is again sort of a no-not-yet-but-tommorrow-for-sure mail,
and I feel bad about it. unfortunately I did not get too much things
straight in the last few weeks.
