  • Fails to mention that unit test must be run as superuser

unit tests do not need to be run as superuser, though you have to be able to write to the web directories.


That wasn't my experience. I routinely do a chmod -R g+w . in my TWiki hierarchy. In case I forgot, I just did that and ran the unit tests. It resulted in 19 errors and 1 failure. When I run them as superuser, no errors.

If it's supposed to work without being superuser, perhaps there's an error in one or more of the unit tests?


does this need to be in DEVELOP, too?


i've removed the superuser comment because that's not the way it's supposed to work, and if that's the way it's currently working, then that's a bug. plus, there will be all kinds of owner and permissions cleanup if you run as root.
