failed mochitests no longer log state
<karl> are mochitest passes elided from test logs now? <froydnj> karl: yes <karl> i would like to know how far a test got before it timed out, but i'm not seeing progress, even for passing tests <ted> karl: yes <ted> karl: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=937181 <karl> would changing all the 'ok's to todos provide some progress info? or are there other options? <karl> dump? <ted> not sure, froydnj ^^ <karl> froydnj: are successes in a test that fails printed? <froydnj> ted: adding || true to http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/testing/mochitest/tests/SimpleTest/SimpleTest.js#330 will get you your log messages back <karl> froydnj: i need something to run on m-c, not try <froydnj> karl: dump is probably your best option, I think <karl> froydnj: this is making it impossible to diagnose failed tests <karl> froydnj: many failures happen in random tests and it is impractical to dump in all of them <froydnj> karl: please file a bug about it, then, and make it block bug 937181
I think the most reasonable way to do this is to require the test to call: SimpleTest.requestCompleteLog(); and that will force logging of all TEST-PASSes for the current test. Does that sound plausible, Joel?
this looks good and not too insane.
Probably would have been simpler to just provide the patch in the first place. :)
