Integrating XFSTESTS with KDE KIO-FUSE

While current testing suite of KIO-FUSE tests individual operations pretty aptly, it lacks the support to put KIO-FUSE through regression tests. KIO-FUSE has not been through regression tests and chances are, doing so would uncover bugs that previously went undetected. KIO-FUSE is updated fairly frequently and new features are still being added, making regression testing a necessity to prevent new bugs from creeping in.

The lack of regression tests in KIO-FUSE’s current testing suite can be fixed by integrating XFSTESTS with it. XFSTESTS is considered as the quintessential file system regression testing suite and KIO-FUSE would benefit greatly from it. A more rigorous testing regime would translate to an even more robust and reliable filesystem. Testing KIO-FUSE would mean we’re testing KIO slaves as well. As of now, XFSTESTS doesn’t support FUSE, and that’ll have to be added as a part of this project. FUSE support for XFSTESTS would be a major plus since it’d allow hundreds of file systems written using FUSE to be tested.

The project not only benefits KIO, KIO-FUSE and KDE, but the FOSS community as a whole.

Goals

- Add FUSE support to XFSTESTS

- Integrate KDE KIO-FUSE with XFSTESTS

- Run XFSTESTS tests on KDE KIO-FUSE

Final Deliverables

FUSE support for XFSTESTS

Patched XFSTESTS file system regression testing suite for FUSE support. Go through this blog I wrote to know more. The patch can be found at github.com/bhumitattarde/XFSTESTS-FUSE-patch and is under review.

XFSTESTS support for KIO-FUSE

Patched KDE KIO-FUSE for XFSTESTS file system regression testing suite support. Merge request can be found at invent.kde.org/system/kio-fuse/-/merge_requests/58. Core code is approved but unit tests and documentation are under review as of now.

KIO-FUSE XFSTESTS test results

Ran all tests and sorted the results in tabular, color-coded fashion. The spreadsheet can be found at docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LkeBuplbXXJxoXBS-ApsfA1trRLy1CB6PA5a8E1LyyY/edit?usp=sharing. Switch to the Raw sheet for raw test results.
