I am thinking of adding a "large-ish" test of rdoc rdoc'ing a snapshot
of ruby trunk. This takes quite awhile, but is a somewhat interesting
test because it uses a lot of RAM so shows how MRI falls short there.


Generating Darkfish...

[400 second test!]

Any objections to its addition?
Thanks.

No objections. My only general recommendation is to avoid depending on external gems when adding new tests. Not all implementations have the luxury of MRI's number of gems.

Cheers,

Yeah with the rdoc tests I've been packing a local copy of the gem
[pure ruby] to avoid any confusion. With rails it's a bit harder
(some gems are binary so it's impossible to pack them).
