Re: [yast-devel] Why not place refactoring in backlog

I found this nice article[1] that nicely and visible summarize all my

In general I agree with the article but it doesn't apply to YaST
since we already have years of backlog for refactoring. So for us
making it correct does not take a "little bit longer" but likely
several times as long. Also doing a bit refactoring always has
the risk of regressions and without unit tests *and* integration
tests these are hard to discover so often I just do not dare.
