New Never time to do it right, always time to do it over
Venting ...

Every time we're testing a build with major new functionality, someone comes up with "critical" issues that need to be addressed first. We put the new build on the shelf and start a new release branch. Then hey, while we're testing this new thing, let's stuff in these other issues, because they can't wait for the shelved release to be brought back out of mothballs.

Eventually we get back to the shelved thing, and shortchange testing on it because now it has become critical - what, you thought we'd get back to it otherwise?

If regression testing finds previously unknown production issues, how did the previous regression testing not find them?

[sigh]

Could be the regression tests were improved in scope.

Could be that the code for "critical issues" introduced directly or as a side effect incomaptibilities with original design.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
