[New-bugs-announce] [issue11015] Bring test.support docs up to date

New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

The test.support docs are there to help CPython devs with writing good unit tests more easily. There are a few additions we've made in recent years that haven't made it into the .rst file, so it is easy to miss useful tools if you don't go looking through the module source code.

There are some other helper modules (such as test.script_helper) that could also stand to be made easier to find.

Fixing this is just a matter of doing a pass through test.support and the test directory looking for things that might be worth mentioning in the test package docs.
