Forgive me for being a bit dense but I couldn't figure out how to run
the tests. Is there a command that I need to install (like nosetests)?

I tried looking on the website and the README and couldn't find

Good point. I should update those.

Basically from the top level dir you can do

./scripts/ -h

(for help)

./scripts/ -s

(will run just the single - s, CoreSyncLogic Test)

The -c (code coverage) switch is useful to see if you are testing the new code.

There are other details to the test suite, such as the ability to provide local files for the file based tests to use, but the above information should be sufficient for the test you are looking at.

Hope that explains everything
