Mentions in comments
I started this work in #6818. It must be decided, whether it worth doing anything about the issue before the new federation code gets integrated or not.
Federation behavior testing
I started this project in order to make federation testing possible in a reproducible way and as close as possible to the real pod data exchange. This package includes rake tasks that deploy a number of test pods basing on diaspora-replica and LXC. Then it communicates with the pods using JSON requests with the diaspora-api gem and perform actions which imply data exchange using the federation routines. This tool may help in debugging federation refactorings, new features development, regression testings against new and old code. I was provided with a server and I'm now going to deploy the software using the buildbot as a CI system.
Short explanations If you take a look on the grid page, you’ll see the three rows in the table (besides the header). In the left column there are so called “builders” which are in fact are the different test sets. All the tests are parts of the “diaspora_federation_behavior” which runs a couple of test pods and drives them with the client API and verifies that the data gets federated well.
“known_federation_bugs” is made for bugs that are present in the federation right now. That why it’s red - these test (well, only one ATM) fail now.
“regression_testing” is section for current federation features and it is made to control that nothing was broken in the new updates.
There is also the “rename_feature” section that uses my feature branch for the account migration step 1 and tests whether the account rename goes well across the federation. There are few tests yet, but that could be used as a framework for much more cool things which could, I believe, help diaspora project to stay stable.
