Description Jeroen De Dauw 2012-11-28 16:16:37 UTC
ExternalChangesList has no documentation on what it's supposed to be and class-orientated (ie everything is static). It also has a 120+ line method that should probably be split up.
Comment 1 Jeroen De Dauw 2012-11-28 16:44:35 UTC
It also has no tests.
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2012-11-30 16:08:31 UTC
From the looks of it, it's a utility class for constructing changes entries on on RecentChanges and the watchlist. Unit testing this will probably just be a bunch of regular expressions against the output, but we should have that anyway.
Comment 3 Lydia Pintscher 2013-10-08 17:12:47 UTC
Still relevant?
Comment 4 Jeroen De Dauw 2013-10-08 18:19:17 UTC
Yes. Looks like this code has not been improved upon. Also still lacks tests for basically everything.
