Running individual tests
When developing code, running the entire test suite can be
slow. Running individual tests is possible easily for unit-tests, less
so for shell-tests (but these are faster, so it shouldn't be needed).
For Python tests::
$ python ./test/ganeti.%mytest%
For Haskell tests::
$ make htest/test && ./htest/test -t %pattern%
Where ``pattern`` can be a simple test pattern (e.g. ``comma``,
matching any test whose name contains ``comma``), a test pattern
denoting a group (ending with a slash, e.g. ``Utils/``), or more
complex glob pattern. For more details, see the documentation (on the
`test-framework homepage
