Abstract: Sage is intended to build and run on a variety of platforms, including all major Linux distributions, as well as macOS, and Windows (with Cygwin). There is considerable variation among these platforms. To ensure that Sage continues to build correctly on users’ machines, it is crucial to test changes to Sage, in particular when external packages are added or upgraded, on a wide spectrum of platforms. This tutorial introduces developers to the new tools for portability testing that were introduced in Sage 9.1.
