Dave> You could always test them with real servers. It's imperfect but
Richie Hindle contacted me offline and indicated that there are some
server-based tests. They've not been run in ages, so there are currently
tons of failures. Rather than inundate the list with the current massively
failing output of
BAYESCUSTOMIZE= nosetests .
I stuck it on my website:
Hopefully some of the failures are shallow bugs, but I never got involved
with the imap filter and pop3 proxy so I'm not sure.
>> The core classifier should be fairly well-tested by the daily use it
Dave> Except that the %x bug somehow got loose.
Yeah, haven't figured that out out yet.

Done. Welcome to the pool.
>> That said, I agree that SpamBayes needs some formal test framework.
Dave> Well, you could start by just trying to load all the modules ;-)
Checked in as .../spambayes/test/test_basic_import.py
I also have a truckload of small modifications in my sandbox which I hope to
start checking in in the next few days/weeks. I believe all (or almost all)
are related to dumping Python 2.2 support and creating a central module to
gather version- and platform-dependent imports.
