Summary     : Automated Testing Framework
Description :
The Automated Testing Framework (ATF) is a collection of libraries and
utilities designed to ease unattended application testing in the hands of
developers and end users of a specific piece of software.

As regards developers, ATF provides the necessary means to easily create
test suites composed of multiple test programs, which in turn are a
collection of test cases.  It also attempts to simplify the debugging of
problems when these test cases detect an error by providing as much
information as possible about the failure.

As regards users, it simplifies the process of running the test suites and,
in special, encourages end users to run them often: they do not need to
have source trees around nor any other development tools installed to be
able to certify that a given piece of software works on their machine as

This package provides the end-user tools (atf-run and atf-report being the
most relevant ones) that implement the run-time system for tests, and also
provides a "meta-package" to install all the components of ATF at once.
Please note that the end-user tools (not the libraries) are deprecated and
that Kyua should be used instead.
