'any' parameters are not validated by type or value
type: e.g. if type is "bool boolArray" and you give it a string "True", that is accepted
value: if xml has allowed values, this is not checked and invalid values get through
some numeric types (int64, numpy numeric types) fail validation

We have discussed the creation of a new module called 'casatests' for casa6. It will store the relevant test scripts that currently live in gcwrap/python/scripts/regressions and will store new test scripts for performance, stakeholders tests, etc. More information is available in this confluence page.
The JIRA ticket CAS-12802 will track the implementation of a casatests module.
We have also discussed a new structure for a data repository used for tests. The idea is to keep the existing casa-data as read-only and create a new data repo with only the files we will use in casa6. The new data repo should be better structured and easier to understand. More information on the discussions and proposed designs is available in this page.
