Thou Must Not Fail

Synopsis

This is a list of the most critical resident created objects used in Second Life that need to always work.

The Reasoning

Second Life is very complex. There are an infinite number of ways to do things in Second Life. These methods may be right or wrong. These methods may exploit bugs or logic holes. While testing upcoming server releases it just isn't possible to test everything resident created. QA will test changed features and make sure they work as expected. Oftentimes there are edge cases that fail without QA's knowledge. This list is a list of really important items that should always work. We will test these objects early on in the QA process and use it as a sort of canary in the coal mine test.
