Currently, if one runs

$ make test

a file


is created with the results of the tests. However, this stops testing two versions of Sage at the same time - even if the tests take place on different machines.

Hence it would be useful if the log file had the hostname, date and time in it.

I would suggest a name like


would be useful to indicate

  • The hostname was "redstart"
  • The time the tests started was "23:22:57"
  • The date the tests started was "02:26:2010"

This would allow multiple versions of Sage to be tested on multiple computers at the same time.

Adding the Sage version would be nice too, as below for Sage 4.3.3

Given that the original problem (writing to $HOME) doesn't occur anymore, given that running make (p)test(long) twice in the same installation is unlikely and given that it's nice to have easy, predictable filenames for the logfiles, I propose to close this as invalid.
