RFE: include coverage tests into the package

Issue #394 closed
Alexander Todorov created an issue

Currently the tests are not included in the package tarball on PyPI. This is valid for both 3.x and 4.x versions.

I'm writing some external programs which rely on coverage functionality and would like to test them. The easiest way is to inherit my test suite from one of the coverage test classes and use all the helper methods which are there. This is not possible at the moment b/c the test suite is not shipped with the rest of the package.

    I moved some of the test helpers into a file in the coverage package specifically so others could use them. What helpers are you using? Maybe I can add those.

    Hmm, actually, the test code is in the kit, but isn't installed... that seems like the worst of both worlds...

    I see the test_helpers.py file. Let me see if I can go by with it or will require more of the test classes.
