Description (last modified by tomek)

Many unit-tests lack description of their scope and purpose. It would be useful to have a consistent way to document them.

One simple approach to that problem is to define a macro that will call TEST and TEST_F macros from gtest, but will take additional parameter(s).

Such additional parameter would be test description.
Another parameter to consider would be the component the test is covering (auth, resolver, dhcp4, dhcp6 etc.)

With such extension, it would be possible to write a script that will parse all unit-test code and generate test report. Together with GTEST_OUTPUT=xml:results.xml passed to unit-tests, it would allow us to generate a proper test report that could be further processed.

It's a nice concept, but we have more pressing matters to solve. Let's keep it in outstanding for now.
