Later today I’m planning to land D71151, which moves lldb/packages/Python/lldbsuite/test to lldb/test/API, and removes the lldb/test/API/testcases symlink. This is a large move, so I expect it will cause conflict for many outstanding patches with lldb tests. However, it should hopefully make testing the lldbsuite/test/api a little easier: for example, you can now run “ninja check-lldb-api-lang” to run that subdirectory of tests, which matches how ninja targets work for the rest of llvm testing. (Note: “ninja check-lldb” still works without re-invoking cmake, but you need to run cmake again to get all the sub targets). It also removes the symlink, which confuses some tools, and makes file navigation confusing.
I have verified no tests got lost in the move via:
(cd /path/to/src/llvm-build/tools/lldb/test && /usr/bin/python /path/to/src/llvm-build/dev/./bin/llvm-lit -sv /path/to/src/llvm-project/lldb/test/API --show-tests)
which shows no diffs before/after my patch
