sadt - simple DEP-8 test runner
sadt [options] [test-name...]
sadt is a simple implementation of DEP-8 (“automatic as-installed package testing”) test runner.
It is your responsibility to satisfy tests' dependencies. sadt won't attempt to install any missing packages. If a test's dependencies cannot be satisfied by packages that are currently installed, the test will be skipped.
sadt won't build the package even if a test declares the build-needed restriction. Instead, such a test will be skipped. However, you can build the package manually, and then tell sadt to assume that the package is already built using the -b/--built-source-tree.
sadt doesn't implement any virtualisation arrangements, therefore it skips tests that declare the breaks-testbed restriction.
