[aspect-devel] Automated tests

just FYI: I've added the infrastructure for automated tests to aspect. 
If you go to the tests/ directory and say
   make report
it runs aspect against each of the .prm files in this directory. They 
are all configured in such a way that they write their output into a 
directory output-xxx (for an input file xxx.prm). There is a 
corresponding directory xxx that has a subset of the output files saved, 
and the 'make' command then compares the saved files xxx/* against the 
newly created output files output-xxx/*.

I have set up our tester machine so that it runs these tests for every 
deal.II svn repository version, which is several times a day. You can 
track the output here, in the x-app-aspect line:

If you implement a new model, a test, a new parameter or a new feature, 
I'd like to encourage you to also make a little test out of your current 
input file. That's the only way to ensure long-term that features 
continue to work!
