Coding standards need to be figured out and corrected as noted by webchick:
Coding standards compliance for both SimpleTest module and all tests.
Figure out and document test naming/coding conventions + get them in Coder module so they're flagged. March 28, 2008 (boombatower, Doug Green?)
I'm not sure what others are thinking, which is why I'm starting this issue, but I think we should make SimpleTest compliant with drupal standards. Meaning change the camelCase standard being used to the drupal standard.
Since a large portion of the public methods are wrapped by
DrupalTestCase the methods can just be renamed there. Any non-wrapped methods can be wrapped in order to renamed them.
The class names for each of the tests as well as
DrupalTestCase itself need to be renamed as well.
After the above has been completed the coder module will be useful for checking tests as well. That is a nice benefit of going all out to follow drupal standards.
Once this has been discussed, modified, and agreed upon I will be happy to write some patches to fix the SimpleTest framework as well as the individual tests.
