Subject: [PATCH 3/4] t0000: run cleaning test inside sub-test
Date: Thu, 19 Nov 2020 19:22:47 -0500
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

Our check of test_when_finished is done directly in the main script, and
if we failed to clean, we complain and exit immediately. It's nicer to
signal a test failure here, for a few reasons:

  - this gives better output to the user when run under a TAP harness
    like "prove"

  - constency; it's the only test left in the file that behaves this way

  - half of its "if" conditional is nonsense anyway; it picked up a
    reference to GIT_TEST_FAIL_PREREQS internal in dfe1a17df9 (tests:
    add a special setup where prerequisites fail, 2019-05-13) along with
    its neighbors, even though it has nothing to do with that flag

We could actually do this without a sub-test at all, and just put our
two tests (one to do cleanup, and one to check that it happened) in the
main script. But doing it in a subtest is conceptually cleaner (from the
perspective of the main test script, we are checking only one thing),
and it remains consistent with the "cleanup when failing" test directly
after it, which has to happen in a sub-test (to avoid the main script
complaining of the failed test).
