comment What's the point of running unit tests on a CI server?
Yeap, simply forgetting to commit some of the changes is very common. I'd say forgetting to "svn add" new files and so forgetting to commit them later is the most popular way to get a failing automatic build.

@jwenting Whatever happens to the compiler which makes it pwn my machine counts. Maybe it executes the compilation result, maybe it corrupts some data - whatever.

comment How safe is it to compile a piece of source code from a random stranger?
@logc We're an ISV, not a security auditing company, so being able to pwn anything is not the top requirement for us.

comment How safe is it to compile a piece of source code from a random stranger?
@Mandrill LOL, nope, I nitpick to just about anything and then I check the code with Cppcheck and also think of compiling it and looking at warnings if that's easy to do.

Any explanation of why compiling is totally safe? One can pwn a server by sending a cleverly crafted message - why can't he pwn a compiler by giving it a cleverly crafted input?

comment How safe is it to compile a piece of source code from a random stranger?
@RemcoGerlich I don't want to run it either but I want to compile it to see if the compiler emits any warnings.

@RemcoGerlich I'm not a security expert and clearly I would not pay much attention to some hardcoded array initializer contents.

comment Does path coverage guarantee finding all bugs?
It would be fair to change your code comments so that they say "path coverage" because that's what you're talking about.
