Description

Now that the number of tests is growing a new issue appears: which of the http evader tests are supposed to no longer be skipped after the last merges? We can try declaring HTTP_EVADER_OK and see which tests pass, but then we'd have to correlate that with the list of skipped tests if HTTP_EVADER_OK is not declared. Quite cumbersome.

So my suggestion is to add a way to check this. Run suricata-verify with an option to try tests with a skip condition anyway.

Something like:

run.py --test-skip HTTP_EVADER_OK

This would then only run those tests that have HTTP_EVADER_OK in their requires and would output something like:
===> http-evader-447: FAILED requires HTTP_EVADER_OK, so considering OK
===> http-evader-448: OK - is requires HTTP_EVADER_OK needed?
..
PASSED:  1368
FAILED:  0
SKIPPED: 149
SKIPPED OK: 1
SKIPPED FAIL: 1

This would then make it clear which of the tests needs to be updated.

off note - i just saw a small miss spell

 http-evader-448: OK - is requires ...

"is requires" should probably be "required".

(newbie :) ) Question - do we have a way to list what can be declared to be skipped ? Or how to list multiples tests sequences to be skipped?

Related: You can tell suricata-verify what tests to run as well, for example:

.../run.py dns

will only run tests with "dns" in the name.

.../run.py dns http

will run tests with "dns" OR "http" in the name.
