One issue is that this new project is primarily concerned with testing parts of
the spec that have not been fully supported in Linux so far. These are the kind
of things that are not included in LSB yet, so they wouldn't be appropriate in
LSB's test suite.
Another problem is the overhead of the TET framework. One of the goals of this
the new test suite is to have test cases which are utterly minimal. So far, each
test case has its own main() function and a bare minimum of surrounding code.
The idea is that when a bug is found, this one .c file can be sent to the
appropriate developer, and without any learning curve, they have the ability to
find their bug. I don't think LKML wants to see TET code posted here. :)
