The latest store changes makes some of the unit tests fail without any good indication of why the failure has occured. Since reverting changes doesn't fix file system dates, reverting a change doesn't fix the test. Specifically if the rcs txt,v file is older than the txt file for any of the SearchTestTopics, then SemiAutomaticTestCaseTests::test_TestCaseAutoSearchOrder will fail.

  • Add an optional %FAILMSG% macro that will be expanded in the test results if the test fails.
  • Modify the postRenderingHandler of the TestFixturePlugin to expand the failure message

In TestCaseAutoSearchOrder, set the failure message

   * Set FAILMSG = <b>Verify the file system dates of the <code>.txt,v</code> files for each of the 3 SearchTestTopicX topics.   If the <code>.txt</code> file is newer in the file system than the corresponding <code>.txt,v</code> file, the test will fail.   <code>touch</code> each <code>.txt,v</code> file to resolve the failure.</b>

Note that this message is expanded after rendering, so it needs to be plain html.
