Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] [] Use Milestones/RCs To Test and Run

The Platform cannot envision all the ways it is used. We do what we can to test. So, as long as you test your stuff against all the milestones and then don't file bugs after RC2 - fine.

Projects have enough on their plates testing their own code, let alone testing the platform. This seems to be a deficiency in the regression testing of the platform, and should be handled by the platform team IMHO.

It would be great if everyone could at least test or even better, run on the latest milestone/RC. Platform got a stop ship bug for 4.13 and one for 4.14 reported after RC2. The 4.13 bug was introduced in M3 and the 4.14 bug in M1. So, there would have been enough room to find the bugs earlier.

Of course the Platform team does exactly that but everyone has its own patterns how to work and hence, unfortunately did not detect those bugs.

Thanks to everyone who helps with testing!
