When I was at IBM, this sort of thing would have been part of
integration testing. As I mentioned earlier, when you make a significant

That's a nice thing you can step up to do by yourself. see

We can't test everything, and even less all sorts of scenarios that having two
init systems bring up.


Not testing everything is not the same as not testing the basics. Postfix is
hardly a corner case.


Postfix is installed on nearly every system. The question should better be: Why was it not reported earlier? It should have been noticed earlier and somebody - including myself - should have noticed earlier. I just wonder, why nobody did - or was the bug filed in time and not taken care off?

On the other hand a detailed test plan with test cases would be great to have - I'm sure the opensuse-testing team would welcome any actual help to make 12.2 better. The testcases which were run, e.g. the openqa tests, showed success once 12.1 was declared golden. so, it's not that we don't have tests - we don't have enough and then you need ways (automatic testing or volunteers) to run and report them,
