[DB-SIG] Test Suite?

Perhaps I did not make myself clear...

The launchpad project IS Stuart Bishop's current source. He set it up so
that it could be more easily maintained and is the Maintainer of the
project.  I have not (yet) submitted any changes. The test I use on Python
3x is this same test run through 2to3.py with a few changes where Python 3
breaks the PEP 429 definitions. (I have suggested to Marc-André Lemburg that
the PEP needs to be updated for Python 3 syntax, but he does not feel that a
change is appropriate at this time.)

This project tests only for DB-API compliance, and make no attempt to test
things which are not part of the API such as those Michael Bayer suggests.
IMHO Machael's comments are spot on, but should be addressed as part of a
DB-API version 3. Marc-André is against making a newer API, while BDFL is
for it.

Any one with patches can submit them through launchpad.
