Result object is null when a test case is skipeed.

You should justify the proposed change here on the issue, and see if the doc says anything about the issue either way.

I agree with Iman that this looks like a bug because the code updates the result object with skip info but then doesn't return it.

The patch needs a unit test covering this, as well as probably a doc update.

I'll add a documentation and unit test and update the PR.

It is a bug because there is a difference between the following cases:

    def test1(self):

    def test2(self):

    def test2(self):

None is only returned in the first case. In other two cases a TestResult is returned with information about skipping.

It is obvious that it was unintentionally.

I just have fixed similar bug about calling stopTestRun() (issue44955).

Iman, please add tests and a NEWS entry. You can use tests added in issue44955 as an example.
