about the tests

I made a script for the tests I am almost satisfied with. Some issues remain, 

1) what should be tested ?
Currently, the following is run:
makeinfo --html
makeinfo --html --no-split
makeinfo --xml
makeinfo -E
texi2dvi (and then dvips)

I believe there are some missing, like with --no-headers, for docbook, 
maybe pdf, but I am not knowledgable enough to know what is worth testing.

2) texi2dvi and dvips generate files with the date and the hour. It leads to
diff failing for no good reason. Do you have an idea on what to do with these
files (.log, .ps, dvitype result and stderr of TeX) ? I see 2 possibilities
- extract the strings before doing the diff, with a specially crafted sed 
- don't do diff

What do you think ?
