Expand permission test suite to include definition of custom privileges in a couple of setups

Provide an automated test of "advanced" permission features: permission inheritance via group, or via the permission context

Test further improvement of injection attempt by penetration tests

Replicate a smarter attempt by a penetration tool to disguise the javascript: protocol

Remove duplicated entry

Rework of util::which

The new version deals now correctly with absolute paths,

where just the extensions are added, and it is checked

whether the program is executable.

Extended regression test to deal with optional and required

external dependencies. Missing optional external programs

produce warnings.

Cleanup of external binaries: always use "util::which" to resolve binaries

Background: it is important to always use the same binaries of some

programs. This is important for security reasons, consistency, and

configurability (some operating systems have read-only file systems,

which might be on the path and should be avoided for some operations).

Improve test:

whether the html filter will accept or not a script tag is configuration-dependent. We now enforce that the outcome is consistent with the security check for HTML used in the filter itself.

Replicate injection attempt by penetration tools

bugfix: fixed test test_ad_register_proc when running in a container

When runnig in a container, one cannot use util_current_localtion, which refers

to the URL to reach the server from the container host. To address the server

inside the container, acs::test::url should be used.

This change does not matter for non-containerized applications

Provide facilities to validate against invalid SQL strings

We introduce a new page contract filter and nsf validator called "dbtext". They implement enforcing of a value to be useable in an SQL query. Currently, this means that the value should not contain the NUL character, but the definition may change in the future or become database-specific.

The html contract filter has also be extended to reject the NUL character.

The test suite has been updated/extended to reflect the changes.

Improve test for singleton package parameters (aka instance parameters of singleton packages):

- do not choose a parameter at random, test them all instead

- do not test for global parameters. For those, the api will behave differently

- do not test for parameters coming from the configuration file. The parameter::* api does not allow to manipulate those

- do not check for packages that are not mounted. A value would not be found for those

fix typo

skip "-url" in "export_vars -url" since it is the default

Test apm_workspace directory api

Test creating and extracting an APM Package tarball

file apm-file-procs.tcl was initially added on branch oacs-5-10.

As tcllib was released in 2016, I believe we can cleanup the legacy zip implementation

Extend the test to cover also cornercase behavior concerning overwriting of files

Test zipping and unzipping utilities

Make test less tautological

Test for psql only when this is expected

Test external command dependencies

This will currently fail because of a bug in db_get_pgbin

Test ad_change_password
