<exarkun> keeping data in the source tree should be avoided where possible <exarkun> I don't think anyone knows how to avoid it in _all_ cases, but where it's obvious how to do so it seems worthwhile. <exarkun> And dumping data into a temporary path during the test run opens up more testing opportunities <exarkun> If the data is part of the shipped source, then it's hard to rely on some of the less obvious properties (permissions, for example) <exarkun> There's a handful of tests that fail when run against an installed copy of Twisted. I dunno if this test is one of them, but it suffers from the same problem as the failing tests do, even if it doesn't have the same symptom
