Oh, thanks. I missed that text in parentheses.
I welcome suggestions for better and clearer sentence there. Thanks.
A little sideways to the conversation, but a note that sprang
to mind regarding software engineering best practices:
Some projects demand that any patch to the code include a
patch-specific test case, that demonstrates the presence of a
defect if the code is unpatched, but which passes if the patch
is applied (the obvious name: A regression test rig).
I suspect that the person who posed the original question was
anticipating/expecting an updated test rig to cover at least
the changes since the last dot-point release, in line with
this style of code management within the industry.
I'm not good at reading minds; that's just my guess.
