test_distutils consistently fails now:

./python -m test test_distutils
Run tests sequentially
0:00:00 [1/1] test_distutils
test test_distutils failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/angwer/cpython/Lib/distutils/tests/", line 122, in test_check_restructuredtext_with_syntax_highlight
    self.assertEqual(cmd._warnings, 0)
AssertionError: 1 != 0

test_distutils failed

1 test failed:

The reason for this failure is lack of pygments. docutils seems to require pygments when parsing code block even in doc. But docutils doesn't treat pygments as a dependency and pip install it won't pull in pygments.

Hmm.. the test works for me on master branch

$ ./python.exe -m test test_distutils
Run tests sequentially
0:00:00 [1/1] test_distutils
1 test OK.

Total duration: 4 sec
Tests result: SUCCESS

I can reproduce it with the following dependencies:

    $ pip list
    docutils (0.12)
    pip (8.1.2)
    setuptools (27.1.2)

The test was added in issue 23063. Since the purpose of the test was testing a bug in _check_rst_data(), skipping it if pygments is not available wouldn't be an ideal solution.

We probably need to do something like:

    if pygments is not None:
        self.assertEqual(len(msgs), 0)
        self.assertEqual(len(msgs), 1)
            'Cannot analyze code. Pygments package not found.'
