I am not sure whether this is all a problem I caused or not. The changes I made were *supposed* to be in-place (which made them awkward) and not cause API problems, but sometimes that works differently in theory than in practice. AFAIK, we *must* rely on timely user testing to find these problems. If we have test cases that need to be run, then we need to document that process. The last comments I remember (from Keiron, IIRC) were that testing was hopelessly broken and not yet worth fixing. I know Joerg has a testing scheme in place, but I think it is not what you are talking about. See: http://xml.apache.org/fop/dev/testing.html WRT API dependencies, we need to either document them or delegate the management of them to someone who knows them. Please let me know if I need to fix something here. I seem to be hopelessly lost WRT where we are going with API issues, but as long as they don't prevent us from cleaning up FOP's underlying design, I'll be glad to help any way I can. Victor Mote
