 1Finding and running tests
 4nose, by default, follows a few simple rules for test discovery.
 6* If it looks like a test, it's a test. Names of directories, modules,
 7  classes and functions are compared against the testMatch regular
 8  expression, and those that match are considered tests. Any class that is a
 9  `unittest.TestCase` subclass is also collected, so long as it is inside of a
10  module that looks like a test.
12* Directories that don't look like tests and aren't packages are not
13  inspected.
15* Packages are always inspected, but they are only collected if they look
16  like tests. This means that you can include your tests inside of your
17  packages (somepackage/tests) and nose will collect the tests without
18  running package code inappropriately.
20* When a project appears to have library and test code organized into
21  separate directories, library directories are examined first.
23* When nose imports a module, it adds that module's directory to sys.path;
24  when the module is inside of a package, like package.module, it will be
25  loaded as package.module and the directory of *package* will be added to
26  sys.path.
28* If an object defines a __test__ attribute that does not evaluate to
29  True, that object will not be collected, nor will any objects it
30  contains.
32Be aware that plugins and command line options can change any of those rules.
