Description Carlos Alberto Lopez Perez 2018-01-19 04:15:40 PST
The TERM environment variable is used to tell the capabilities of the terminal to the running process.
On most of the GTK/WPE bots we set this to TERM=dumb so the tests don't generate ANSI color codes that just look bad on the txt/html files generated by buildbot and make reading the results harder.

We noticed color codes are happening on the new webdriver tests even with this variable.
It looks we are not letting the driver pick this variable, so when pytest is invoked it can't see it.
