I am using `nose` to generate xunit test result files. With the option `--xunit-testsuite-name=<NAME>` (https://nose.readthedocs.org/en/latest/plugins/xunit.html#cmdoption--xunit-testsuite-name) it sets the `name` attribute in the `testsuite` tag to a custom value instead of the default value `nosetests`). The following is an example result file - note the `name` attribute in the root tag:
Currently the xunit plugin (I am using the JUnit repor) does not use the `name` attribute of the `testsuite` tag anywhere. The hierarchy of the test results is built only based on the `classname` of the `testcase` tag. If multiple result files contain testcases it is not clear to which result file they belong.
It would be very helpful if the hierarchy would also include the `name` attribute of the `testsuite` tag to build the hierarchy. This would group the testcases from each testsuite more reasonable.
Please let me know if I can provide any more information.
