Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (DERBY-999) test SURTest.junit fails with ibm142
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2006 18:58:30 GMT
New tests that break regression suite should be backed out of suite.  A
reasonable exception is if the submitter is actively working on fixing 
the problem, and let's the community know it.

If I had committed the change then I would feel it was my job to back it 
out if the submitter doesn't look like they will be able to get to it. 
Hopefully having a clean regression suite run is an itch that at least 
all the committers are interested in.

to correct this for ibm142, instead expecting it to be automagically fixed when the functionality
goes in for full.
