I'm not so familiar with osstest. (Maybe I should have a look at it so
that we can know how to use it for some auto tests.)
I just have a quick (probably dummy) question:
Do we have any document that describes the coverage of the test?

The reason I asked this is:
1) The document could make it easier for users to know which
functionalities of the feature (i.e., RTDS scheduler here) have been
2) I didn't see the toolstack functionality of RTDS scheduler is
called in the test. So I'm wondering about the first question. :-)
(probably I missed something?)
