  • get Rishi's autotesting of examples directory to work: He developed it under OS X, but it doesn't work on Linux because of differences in how they run scripts, etc. Plus, it's a really hard challenge to create such automated testing, so it needs to be looked over again.

  • Priority changed from major to critical

Where is that code? Does that mean that we want to be able to run the doctests in examples? Then certainly this ought to be of much higher priority since the examples *must* work with the version of Sage that shipped it.

This looks invalid or maybe even done.

Why do you think #298 should be closed?
[2:45pm] wstein:
It's more important than ever to fix.
[2:45pm] jason-:
I thought it was talking about doctesting, basically
[2:45pm] wstein:
There is a directory SAGE_ROOT/examples.
[2:45pm] wstein:
That code isn't tested at all.
[2:45pm] jason-:
to quote the comment, "where is that code"?
[2:45pm] wstein:
It's a terrifying disaster.
[2:45pm] jason-:
oh, okay
[2:45pm] jason-:
never mind
[2:46pm] wstein:
I can't believe I still haven't dealt with this... but oh well.
[2:46pm] wstein:
It's one of those things that looks easy until you try it.

See the related ticket #7494. If that is closed, then this ticket is certainly invalid.
