I've been trying to work out how to test that permissions are checked
at every point they ought to be. There's a table of every such point
Some of these already have tests, but most probably do not. Before I
start creating tests I'm thinking that we need some way to correlate
mauve tests with the throwpoints on this (and future) lists.
How would people feel if I numbered the throwpoints on the above list
and noted them in their corresponding tests in some easily parsable
form (probably in comments like Tags are already). That way whether a
throwpoint is tested (and the location of the test) can be found with
a simple grep.
For simplicity I'd probably number the 1.4.2 list from 1-whatever.
Checks added in 1.5 can be added at the end of the list.
It would be convenient if we made a version of the above list
annotated with the throwpoint numbers, but obviously such a thing
could not be distributed. It should be possible to write a script
that would download and annotate the list for local use.
Does this sound reasonable?
