Description Nick Coghlan 2013-11-20 20:11:30 EST
While the task writing guide (http://beaker-project.org/docs/user-guide/writing-tasks.html) makes reference to running multi-host tests outside Beaker in a couple of places, it doesn't provide clear instructions on running tasks outside Beaker in general.

The example at http://beaker-project.org/docs/user-guide/example-task.html#populating-runtest-sh should be updated to split that section into three:

- writing runtest.sh
- running the task locally
- packaging the task as an RPM and uploading it to the Beaker Task Library

There should also be a new "Running tasks locally" section, which is referenced from both the updated walkthrough and the multi-host testing section.
