Description Ales Zelinka 2014-07-29 14:15:56 UTC
When running internal testsuite as an unprivileged user, it's expected to get some failures (e.g. from mount and selinux tests). Would be nice if those testcases were somehow tagged as root-only and the testsuite won't count them towards the failures when not executed by root.

Comment 2 Ales Zelinka 2014-11-12 12:23:31 UTC
looks good. can you provide more visibility into this feature? I.e. count the number of skipped test-cases and log it as part of the test execution summary?

Comment 3 Dalibor Pospíšil 2014-11-13 09:39:24 UTC
I guess this would need better support from the test suite side. Could you file it as separate RFE which would be solved in one of the future releases?
