[New-bugs-announce] [issue26869] unittest longMessage docs
report at bugs.python.org
Wed Apr 27 03:47:47 EDT 2016
New submission from Thomas Guettler:
The first message of the longMessage docs is confusing:
> If set to True then ....
This reads between the lines, that the default is False.
But that was long ago in Python2. In Python3 the default is True (which I prefer to the old default).
I think the docs should be like.
And the term "normal message" is not defined. For new comers the "normal message" is what I get if you don't change the default, not the behaviour of the Python2 version :-)
I think "normal message" should be replaced with "short message" or "diff message" .. I am unsure.
What do you think?
