    11= NSS =
    2 
    3 == The testsuite in modern versions of nss ==
    4 
    5 The current testsuite is designed to catch regressions in new additions,
    6 so every new addition should come with one or more tests (I noticed from
    7 the diff between 3.40 and 3.40.1 that there ''were'' tests, although the
    8 book said there was not a testsuite).
    9 
    10 Unfortunately, it needs to be run with nspr and nss directories side by
    11 side in the top-level directory (which is how combined nspr+nss tarballs
    12 present things), and built unoptimized (BUILD_OPT=0).

    14 For further details, see [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/NSS/NSS_Sources_Building_Testing]

    16 I managed to get that process working on nss-3.40-with-nspr-4.20 but not with 3.40.1.
    17 {{{
    18 make -C nss nss_build_all USE64=1
    19 }}}
    20 That took almost 25 minutes, I don't think the particular CPU makes a lot of difference.
    21 For that run, 6 tests failed (look for ' FAILED' in the output), all reporting that a
    22 peer's certificate has expired.
    23 
    24 Unless you intend to hack on nss/nspr, running the tests on a released version is not recommended.
