tests: Create a regression-tests package for distribution
As of today regression tests are an in-house breed, by making it a new package and distributing it ensures larger set of people use it and contribute to it. This can also be used by any consumer/user to build their own environment for glusterfs regression testing which is today limited only to 'upstream' 'glusterfs' releases and Change-Id: I4f7e9fd1c49982dcf0d788ef6a83ffe895a956ac BUG: 764966 Signed-off-by: Harshavardhana <> Reviewed-on: Reviewed-by: Niels de Vos <> Tested-by: Gluster Build System <>

-How to use test script framework.
+Regression tests framework for GlusterFS
+## Prereq
- Build and install the version of glusterfs with your changes. Make
sure the installed version is accessible from $PATH.
+## How-To
- To mount glusterfs, NEVER use 'mount -t glusterfs', instead use
'glusterfs -s ' method. This is because with the patch build setup
doesnot install the /sbin/mount.glusterfs necessary, where as the
glusterfs binary will be accessible with $PATH, and will pick the
right version.
- (optional) Set environment variables to specify location of
export directories and mount points. Unless you have special
requirements, the defaults should just work. The variables
themselves can be found at the top of tests/include.rc. All
of them can be overriden with environment variables.
-- Execute in the top level directory as root.
+## Usage
+- Execute `/usr/share/glusterfs/` as root.
-- If some test cases fail, you can execute the failed test case script
- directly bypassing At this time it might be
- useful to set the envrionment variable DEBUG=1 before running
- the individual test script directly by hand.
+- If some test cases fail, report to GlusterFS community at
+ ``.
-- BE WARNED THAT THE TEST CASES DELETE /var/lib/glusterd/* !!!
+## Reminder
