There is a separate erlang application named test_server which is used by
the common_test application. We don't think there
are any use of the test_server APIs directly it is always used via
What we plan to do is to move the test_server modules into the common_test
application and remove them from the documentation. It will be internal
APIs in common_test.
By doing this it will be easier to make improvements in CommonTest without
need to keep the test_server APIs and behaviour compatible.

Everything is included in CommonTest, no need for test_server as a separate
