From SambaWiki

Samba extensively uses Subunit to describe test results.

At the moment the main testrunner and the testsuites will output subunit.

Samba uses subunit version 1. We do not use subunit version 2, which is a binary protocol.

There are a still things we would still like to achieve:

  • Ability to run single tests (--load-list) in smbtorture
  • Subunit formatting compatible with the main Subunit protocol
