Running tests

Running tests for git-review means running a local copy of Gerrit to check that git-review interacts correctly with it. This requires the following:

  • a Java Runtime Environment on the machine to run tests on

To run git-review integration tests the following commands may by run:

tox -e py27
tox -e py26
tox -e py32
tox -e py33

depending on what Python interpreter would you like to use.
