Jim Newkirk - tell us about NUnit

Description

Jim Newkirk is one of the co-authors of NUnit, a unit-testing framework for all .NET languages, so we asked him about how it was developed.

Jim happened to come along during our interview with Ward Cunningham (the guy who invented the Wiki) and is a development lead with Microsoft's PAG group (platform architecture guidance).

    Here's a q. Why is a relatively simple bugrep (NUnit cant handle inbound COM errors) that covers a null pointer exception simply ignored? This isnt some fancy feature request that isnt worth worrying about, its that NUnit doesnt work right for testing COM interop because its stack trace code doesnt like crossing the boundary. Yet since I filed that in october -absolute silence.

    Now, the OSS projects I'm may have bugreps in
    the high hundreds, but that's because most of them are enhancements or not-replicated-yet funnies, not something so simple. We try and stay on top of the NPEs as they are usually the easiest after errors in the docs.

    Why isnt Team Nunit responding. Are NUnit users expected to be fully self sufficient?
