Description : test runner runner similar to testrepository
Stestr stands for Slim/Super Test Repository. It is a fork of the
testrepository that concentrates on being a dedicated test runner for python
projects. The generic abstraction layers which enabled testr to work with any
subunit emitting runner are gone. Stestr hard codes python-subunit-isms into
how it works. The code base is also designed to try and be explicit, and to
provide a python api that is documented and has examples.
While stestr was originally forked from testrepository it is not 100%
backwards compatible with testrepository. At a high level the basic concepts
of operation are shared between the 2 projects but the actual usage between
the 2 is not exactly the same.
This package is needed by OpenStack Pike.
