Hi all,

there are several tox (the generic python test tool) enhancements i'd
like to address next year.  I've just written down my current thoughts
on reaching these goals::

- allow to more easily define and run dependency and interpreter 
  variants with testenvs

- allow to specify platforms against which tests should run

- allow platform-specific settings

- allow to run installer-variants (easy_install or pip)

The draft html doc explaining the proposed syntax is here:


You can find the source on bitbucket, namely:


Obviously implementing this draft will take some effort.
I am naturally open to reviews, co-hacking or sponsoring.

best & a happy few last days of this year!
