Summary0005175: make check fails to complete
DescriptionI've been unable to run the bank's test cases on my machine for a while. First, what was missing is that I had to manually run:

$ pip3 install validictory
$ pip3 install django-simple-math-captcha

I'm not sure if this is what is supposed to happen, but bootstrap/configure/make install/make check ran into packages missing without it. I thought the crazy Python machinery was supposed to take care of this?

After this, I get a much more crazy error:

I don't know what's going wrong there. Please investigate!

Finally, 'make check' should not interactively ask the user about this DB issue. It's a test DB, so IMO it should just drop it (do 'yes'), instead of asking.

By commit dee02165b9bba.., the bank should destroy pre-existing name-clashing databases by default (upon 'make dist'), and not explode as in the stacktraces you pasted.

The latter happened because the bank logic wanted to instantiate some object X that appear to exist natively in Python, whereas it should have imported it from django; not sure why this popped out now, though.

As of the missing packages, the bank's does include 'validictory' and 'django-simple-math-captcha' among the required packages. Maybe, your 'make install' did install those, but (for some reason) your 'make check' used another installation. It can be worth noting that 'make check' uses the code from within the working directory.

If you run again into this package missing problem, consider also simply running the bank, with

$ taler-bank-manage serve-http

and see if it complains.

Anyway, let's consider this fix UNOFFICIAL and wait next Wednesday to go over it.
