Re: [cdt-dev] CDT Test Runner for CppUTest

Hi Steven,

Right now I can't commit to integrating the code and maintaining it but perhaps soon I will have more time. Maybe another committer could do it sooner. In the meantime, you could create a enhancement request on Bugzilla and upload your change to gerrit.

While I was waiting for reply since my first post, I actually wrote the code for supporting CppUTest in the test runner. So what it takes should be about integrating code in CDT codebase...

Hi all,

Steven, is it correct that you already implemented the code and are hoping to merge it in the codebase?

So, the work of integrating CppUTest would be merely the work of integrating your code in the CDT codebase, right?
