While riding to work today I ran the test suite on trunk.  The following
tests failed due to lack of network connectivity:


These tests should probably either require -u network or should themselves
check to see if the network is available and skip those tests requiring
network connectivity.  In fact,'s comments list test_socket_ssl
as requiring the network resource.  That seems to have regressed since 2.5

Simple patch attached.

This is an easy patch, but I'd like someone to at least verify it works
before checking it in...  nudge, nudge, wink, wink...

This won't work without corresponding changes in; it
currently  mentions test_socket_ssl and test_timeout explicitly.

> it currently  mentions test_socket_ssl and test_timeout explicitly

"it" being  This patch works for me.  In what way is
regrtest's reference to test_socket_ssl (for example) a problem?  All
I did for that test was tighten up the requirements to run the test.
I didn't do anything with test_timeout.  It's unclear to me why you
mentioned it.

Sorry, I was being unclear. I grepped through Lib/test for
"skip_expected" and couldn't find a location where e.g. the newly set
test_urllib2.skip_expected would be accessed. only accesses this attribute on the two modules I named.

I've disabled a single test in socket if the network resource isn't
enable. It fixes the problem for me when I'm offline or my WLAN is
broken again. The test was also called by test_ssl.

I think, for the cases that are not special-cased by regrtest,
test.test_support.requires() should be used.

Updated patch.

    test_socket  - whole suite will be skipped
    test_socket_ssl - no more avail
    test_ssl     - only test that require network will be marked as skipped
    test_urllib2 - untouched, requires fine-grained approach, probably for separate ticket

I propose to split this issue.

One is to test which tests that marked with `test_support.requires('network')` _really_ need network connection.

Second is annotation of appropriate methods instead of whole test suite to count exact number of tests skipped due to absent resource.

All tests now use regrtest resources and/or unittest skips and/or  I ran the faulty tests mentioned in this report while disconnected and got no failure, only skips.  Closing as duplicate/out of date.
