In my quest to get the mt32emu library approved by package managers I hit a wall with brew for macOS.
They switched their system to test *every* package and therefore I couldn't get them to accept my pull request for a mt32emu library "formula" (that's what they call their package informations):
I was angry and disappointed at first because I wanted it and they didn't let me have it 😀
Seriously I was a bit angry because I struggled to see the point, especially with some libraries in their formulas having no test whatsoever, or some libs have totally useless tests (e.g. SDL2, which test consists of running its configure script sdl2-config which has no use in testing the actual lib). I needed some hours and I *do* understand the approach and if they do it right for every package it is probably a good way to make their packages useful.
However... I'm still not able to get it accepted. I have no idea how to start a test program to have something going on with the lib.
@Sergm, could you help me out? an example is maybe the test in the formula for libvorbis https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/blo … la/libvorbis.rb
If you can't or won't, that's ok, it's just nagging on me and I can't let it go 😀
