Subject RE: [lang][codec] Sanity checking a client project build
Date Fri, 21 Nov 2003 17:58:52 GMT
I'd love to have unit tests that I can run whenever I patch my system.  As a
matter of fact, I predict that an OS vendor who could provide that would
make a killing with corporations who are tired of patching their patched
patches to ensure the fixpack patches don't overlay their patched fixpacks.

If you've ever worked with a multi OS/multi hardware platform shop, you'd
know it would be great to have SOME sort of test to give you a warm fuzzy

My $.02

worse is better

Do you require the tests for your OS to make sure it works as 
I think you're being a bit paranoid as you should only depend on 
code not on any dev or snapshot builds.
