Getting the test suites to pass on Travis

I am currently doing occasional commits after reading build reports from travis and readthedocs.

I had a No data to combine message in travis for welfare and fixed it be removing the pytest.ini file. after looking at run_tests_coverage in lino.utils.invlib.tasks.

Another nice failure is this one. It occurs only on travis, not on my machine, obviously because of undefined sorting order when generating demo data using payment suggestions. Seems that something is sorting movements or suggestions randomly when they have same partner and same date. I hoped that this commit but it didn’t. My next attempt was to add ‘project’ to the order_by because that’s what’s different for these movements. But note that project is a dummy field when project_model is not set. And we need to remove it because Django won’t do that for us. I reimplemented fields_list because I believed that I could use it to remove dummy fields from the order_by list. Then I realized that we cannot use fields_list in the global scope of a module and wrote a stupid lino_xl.lib.ledger.Plugin.remove_dummy() method.

And here is #1296 back:

Original exception was:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "virtualenvs/py27/lib/python2.7/site-packages/appy/pod/", line 20, in <module>
    import sys, os, os.path, re, time, signal
  File "/usr/lib/python3.5/", line 335, in <module>
    import copyreg
  File "virtualenvs/py27/lib/python2.7/site-packages/copyreg/", line 7, in <module>
    raise ImportError('This package should not be accessible on Python 3. '
ImportError: This package should not be accessible on Python 3. Either you are trying to run from the python-future src folder or your installation of python-future is corrupted.

That error is also on travis.

I got rid of it after observing that it did not occur when I ran it manually:

$ doctest docs/specs/integ.rst

It occurred only when called using:

from lino.utils.pythontest import TestCase
class SpecsTests(TestCase):

   def test_integ(self):
       return self.run_simple_doctests('docs/specs/integ.rst')

And this one said “Warning: No local config directory. Contact your system administrator. “
