[bug #64081] [mm] verify that user configured paragraph indentation is respected
Thu, 20 Apr 2023 22:03:59 -0400 (EDT)
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
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.
