I think this needs a little more clarification. The density of that is being
expressed is too compact and I think it requires some expansion. For example
from this I cannot tell where an executable boundary is and given RTEMS has had
'testsuites' I feel expanding and explaining each of these is important in
relationship to what RTEMS has and needs. For example:
The `T Test Framework` helps to write test suites. A `test suite` is a
collection of test cases ......
and then ...
... where tests for specific functionality are grouped for example
Is a test executable a collection of "test cases" or a single case? How is this
What is the expected number of tests once this SMP qual work ends? Is hardware
testing a requirement?
An outline of the problem domain being addressed would help?
Can there please be some explanation of what the issues this framework is
attempt to solve are, what it does well, what it does not do well or is not,
plus things like target requirements, test duration, etc?
I feel if this is done the detail that follows will be just that the detail.
