Re: Testing


Unit testing is boring to write so if we just said "Everybody. Write unit
tests. All Projects. Now." it would really take on. On companies and when
developers are paid to work, they can write and put tests everywhere, but
it's harder for us.

For now what we just do is we test the interface, the new features and some
old features too to see if they remain unaffected.
