While making python-intercom Python 3 compatible, I ran into an issue on Travis.

The nosetests command doesn’t appear to exit when run on Python 3.4 (it behaves as expected on Python 2.7). I narrowed it down to tests that use HTTPretty and created a small project to highlight the issue, and to publish the results of a failed build:

$ nosetests
Ran 2 tests in 0.061s

No output has been received in the last 10 minutes, this potentially
indicates a stalled build or something wrong with the build itself.

The build has been terminated

Right now I don’t know how to proceed. I’ve sent an email to Travis, and I’ll update this post with any findings.

2015-03-27 10:43: An answer on Stack Overflow has linked to a known issue with HTTPretty.

2015-03-27 11:04: Downgrading HTTPretty to 0.8.6 allows nose to exit cleanly.
