Issue #236 resolved

Support nose.plugins.skip.SkipTest at import time

Floris Bruynooghe avatarFloris Bruynooghe created an issue

It seems in nose you can raise nose.plugins.skip.SkipTest at import time of a test module. Nose will then just list this as a skipped test. When running this with py.test this will show up as an collection error instead (which is annoying since -x stops on it).

It would be nice if py.test would recognise this exception and also list the module as skipped.

    makes sense. If it can't easily be put into _pytest/ i am also fine to do a bit of special casing in _pytest/ - there are also some nose bits there already.
