I have tried to run the test suite on Windows, according to the
instructions at http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/WindowsTestingPlan
I updated my Mercurial clone back to where the queue was last applied,
and applied the windows testing queue there.
I use Python 2.6, Windows 7 and run the tests from the command prompt. I
wasn't sure whether the tests should be run from cygwin, but then there
was a problem with paths. Someone else mentioned something about the
same thing (I think) on the mailing list a few days ago. So I guess that
one should use cmd to run the tests.
But I ran into some issues with, e.g.:
- confusion over the two different paths separators
- exit codes: a lot of places tests report 127 instead of 255 as exit code.
Can these problems be because I have set up the test suite incorrectly,
because they occur in a lot of the tests for me?
