As Brian already explained we have some special needs when running Mauve
with VMs that might not be very stable so they crash and burn while
running the test suite. That also means that we use as less advanced
features as possible. Please take a look at JUnit for a similar test
framework that doesn't have those constrains and which also comes with a
little bit more documentation <http://www.junit.org/>

I came across the following course that uses Mauve as an example of how
to write unit tests but which includes its own test framework. Maybe
that group can help.
