Thanks! This seemed from its description to be exactly
what I was seeking. However, it appears to conflict
with the --with-xunit plugin in nosetests 0.11.0. If I
run with both --with-xunit and --randomize, the xunit
output file, nosetests.xml shows "0 tests run" even though
there were many tests run.
Also it seems to only randomize the order of test execution
within a file or a test class (not sure which), without
randomizing the order in which the test classes are
I was looking for something that would randomize test order
within a test class, and randomize the order in which tests
classes are executed as well. Any plans to do that, or
suggestions how I could do it?
