Update of bug #64081 (project groff):

                  Status:                    None => Confirmed              
                 Summary: [PATCH] P-indentation-works.sh: make it more robust
=> [mm] verify that user configured paragraph indentation is respected


Follow-up Comment #1:

I'm not sure I agree with your presentation of this.

First, it's not a matter of "robustness" but of _feature coverage_.

"Robustness" is, roughly speaking, resistance to weathering (environmental
factors), error, damage, or breakage.

The test as I wrote it is designed to verify the correct indentation behavior
of the various paragraph types, because each type differs in whether
indentation is applied or not.

That the paragraph indentation _amount_ is _configurable_ in _mm_ is another
matter entirely.

I can foresee a separate test that checks whether the paragraph indentation as
specified by the user (by modifying the `Pi` register is honored.

Also, if we should inadvertently change the O or Pi register defaults, the
existing test would catch that, and with your changes it would not, since it
extracts their values and accepts them whatever they may be.

Thus, I am rejecting the patch, dropping the summary tag, redrawing the scope
of the ticket, and retaining it.  I don't object to the idea; the more test
coverage we can get of _mm_ compared to its current amount, the better.
