Status: In Progress
Affects Version/s: 0.4.0
Fix Version/s: None
If one specifies a directory that does not exist in the --user-plugins argument, test-patch.sh will quietly ignore the directory.
This was found when using a tilde ( ~ ) to attempt home directory expansion
when testing a new plugin.
Bash does not expand tilde's at the beginning of the line when quoted.
Thoughts on resolving this:
1) Should warn in the argument section in 01-common.sh if the directory does not exist. ( Not only for USER_PLUGIN_DIR butt for any of the other directories. )
2) It might be possible to change yetus_abs to handle tilde expansion, and then use that code to expand the parameter. Of note is that yetus_abs is used to expand USER_PLUGIN_DIR in test-patch.sh
3) If there are changes with the argument handling, it should be considered to check with the arguments to ensure that they are not being overwritten. ( This would only happen with user error, but makes debugging and understanding more difficult. )
I will pull together a patch for #1, and reflect on #2/#3 further. Any comments, please add them to the Jira.
