PyReT (Python Regression Tester) is an automated regression hunting application that supports hunts for regressions introduced in code revisions.
An API is supplied to create modules to support hunts for regressions in varied environments.
Our initial module implementation will support hunts for regression in Linux kernel builds.
PyReT has the capability of performing hunts on single or multiple hunter machines.
A master machine is in charge of all hunters and hunts being performed.
A software regression is a bug that exists in some version of software that did not exist in a previous version.
PyReT, once given a range of change sets or modification dates to search, will hunt through this range for the change set that introduced a given regression or bug.
This process of narrowing down the list of possible changes that introduced a bug should make it much easier to squash it.
