This is true, but now how to home in on the problem source, so a
solution is found efficiently?

Do you?

a) Update and change absolutely everything, and release probably as
one huge pile of broken stuff, which then needs a lot of sorting
through?

b) Phased updates, some parts release stable as others change, with
only minimal required bug fixes going in to the rest of the system?

c) Many small steps, rolling back 'bad' changes, with one release
rolling on and evolving into the next?


Some method of moving forwards, and rolling back changes; appears to
me the best shot at growing tester base, and maintaining sufficient
quality for the code to run on real hardware, not virtualised.
