This is the MonetDB way of running the tests, you can also run the (unittest) tests directly with:

 * python capabilities_monetdb.py
 * python dbapi20_monetdb.py

from clients/src/python/test. This way you don't need the sql and monetdb sources. You can change the database port by setting the MAPIPORT environment variable, and the database by changing TSTDB. Username and password should be monetdb.
