    Hi Ovid, Just a quick note for your "Zen of Test Suites" particularly this bit: https://github.com/Ovid/zen-of-test-suites#much-of-the-testing-code-is-duplicated I've found that putting repetitive and declarative test data into arrays makes it easier to figure out which of the items failed its tests....

  • Ovid commented on Perl::QA Hackathon in Lyon - Summary

    Clayton: that's a good point. I have two choices now. I can apply that change, or you can clone the repo and submit a patch. I'd prefer the latter because I'd love to have other people add their insights.
