Discussion on: STOP! Automating everything for "regression" is a waste of time

I would love to know, do these incident specific tests catch regressions?

I would love to know that too.

We haven't had good review of failure analysis and have spent so much time updating these "incident" tests I don't really believe the claim that they have found bugs.

But I do have bias because I like to evaluate risk of an issue reoccurring, severity if it happens, cost to maintain the test due to routine changes of a release.
