Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

Objective

The aim is to make it very easy for people to write unit or system/functional tests for fgfs (rather than simgear), which should make it much easier for new developers to dive into the flightgear sources. A long term goal might be to have good test coverage of the whole binary so that fgfs is harder to break and is more stable.[1]

Background

Challenges

The hardest one would be to set up and run only a small subset of subsystems and other infrastructure. But it is possible to write unit tests now. Writing a system/functional test is much more difficult but, with a bit of work, it should be possible.[2]
