* issue in a bugtracker is unresolved
* failure of the internet connection


$ pip install pytest-external-blockers


import os
import pytest
from .issues import get_tracker

pytestmark = pytest.mark.skipifif(
"BUGTRACKER" in os.environ,
reason="no bugtracker configured")

def bugtracker():
return get_tracker():
except Exception:
pytest.block("bugtracker unavailiable")

def _block_unresolved(request, bugtracker):
issue = request.node.getmarker('issue')
if issue is not None:
for issue_id in issue.args:
if bugtracker.is_unresolved(issue_id)
"{issue_id} was not resolved".format(issue_id))
