WFTO – recover or not?
Yes! This was again a bug fixing week. Vladislav Vaintroub fixed a lot of recovery related bugs and Kevin Lewis and Chris Powers took care about the new scavenger and backlogging.
Since my last report from 2009-01-30 we fixed around 9 Falcon related bugs. Compared to our last WFTO from 2009-01-30 we have 4 new tests.
The development of our failed/passed tests ratio over time looks like:
- 2.51% – 6/239 (this report)
- 1.69% – 4/237 (last report)
- 1.69% – 4/236 (report before last one)
News for this week:
- Christopher Powers fixed
- Vladislav Vaintroub fixed
These are the three of the six failing test cases. I have to admit, that I cannot find the remaining three failures. Maybe we suffer from “Lost Update” or a “Phantom Read“?
- falcon_bug_22169-big (new regression)
- falcon_deadlock (a fix for this test failure is in review)

Give me Falcon as a 5.1 plugin, and I’ll get it tested.
