[New-bugs-announce] [issue15521] Dev Guide should say how to run tests in 2.7

New submission from Chris Jerdonek:

The Dev Guide should say the preferred way (or even a way) to run tests using the Python 2.7 build:


This will help submitters who want to check that their patch works with 2.7.

In Python 2.7, this did not work (for obvious reasons):

$ ./python.exe -m test
.../python.exe: No module named test.__main__; 'test' is a package and cannot be directly executed

But this did:

$ ./python.exe -m test.regrtest

Is the latter the preferred way?
