Hi, In an effort to keep the Avocado code base lean and clean, we're looking at features that have a negative impact in the architecture and future maintenance, and can be replaced by other more solid features. Among those is the "standalone job" feature, which has to do with the ability to embed a job execution within a test file. When you write code such as: #!/usr/bin/env python from avocado import main from avocado import Test class PassTest(Test): def test(self): pass if __name__ == "__main__": main() The `main()` call is really an instantiation and execution of a `avocado.core.Job`. While it looks neat here, the implementation is awkward. The idea is to deprecate this feature, in favor of an opposite approach: job files (using the soon to be supported Job API), with embedded tests. For an example, please refer to: https://github.com/avocado-framework/avocado/pull/3837 Besides a heads up, this is a call for users and use cases that may justify *not* deprecating and removing this. Thanks, - Cleber.
