Optimized the address data checker

Wow, this week end I went into the 18000 checkdata problem messages at weleup. For historical reasons they have quite some differences between the partner addresses and the individual address records. That’s why I started #3727. Our goal is to have Lino fix most of these data issues. This must be fool proof and well tested, because invalid data fixes would not turn out until it’s too late.

Added 150 lines of doctests in Data check on addresses.

For the first time I wrote manual testing instructions targeted to core developers. I plan to collect them in a single document, The manual testing suite for the Lino framework.

The min9 demo now also has phones and sepa plugins. The idea of this demo is to have “all” plugins installed for testing purposes.

Advancing with the getlino test suite

The getlino test suite did not yet cover the instructions for Installing a Lino developer environment. I started by writing Using Docker to test getlino. I found and fixed some bugs.

When I run inv test on my machine, I see a series of warnings:

/home/luc/virtualenvs/py3/lib/python3.6/_collections_abc.py:833: ResourceWarning: unclosed <socket.socket fd=9, family=AddressFamily.AF_UNIX, type=2049, proto=0, raddr=/var/run/docker.sock>

But I have no idea what is causing them.

Ha! After activating stream=True, I found the explanation for a problem that had been a mystery to me for a while:

mysql_secure_installation
