>> No development image should ever be shipped with any failing tests.
>> -Ralph Johnson
No development image should ever be shipped with any failing tests
without some context to explain why they are failing.
/There may be tests that are intended to fail, particularly those
that are intended to validate the external environment for a
product. Of course the most annoying case being the example failure
raising test case in SUnit that is placed there for beginners to see
what a failure looks like./
So, better to say, that no development image should ever be shipped with
any failing tests that are associated with the domain of 'ensuring that
the development image works as expected'. There may be other domains
such as 'known bugs still to be fixed'.
