why not try a /msg gods? Why that's (almost) exactly what I did Coruscate :) I proposed this solution so that we have a standard manner of dealing with the issue, although as tye has already said, it's easier just to deal with it manually. So be it.

The reason I wanted to change my handle is because I'm on the job market, and I want to be able to point potential employers to my work here without twittering on about what and why my handle is what it is. How that fits into your want/require distinction I cannot say, however it's part of a larger policy that I've enacted for myself: if it's professional (e.g., Sourceforge), I use my real name; if it's semi-professional (i.e., Slashdot), then I'll use a pseudonym, and for all else I'll choose a random throwaway name. If anything, this desire on my part shows respect for the Monastery and for this community, because I want to be identified with it for real, even to the point of allowing others within two clicks of my home phone number.

[choroba]: The problem was bigger, as the test tried to call a method that didn't exist anymore
[marinersk]: :: ducking ::
[choroba]: because, someone renamed the method, but didn't notice it was used in the test, as the test was skipped
[marinersk]: Well, if the method doesn't exist, it would be hard to pass the test.
[choroba]: later, someone removed the new method, as all its usage places were safe, but didn't notice the test still used the old name
[choroba]: fortunately, it wasn't that hard to replace the method and fix a few remaining failures due to the changes we did to the codebase over the years
[marinersk]: choroba Sounds like a process improvement opportunity; tests may not all need to be run, but they should all be compiled with perl -c before check-in/promotion happens.
[choroba]: so, now I have the test, so I can start making changes in the code. Back to the original ticket, yay!
[marinersk]: I definitely love it when my $current_taask=& taskPop(); if ($current_task eq $original_task) { } is true.
[marinersk]: s/taask/task/g;
