  • It sounds like your version control system could help you here. It should be easy to use Devel::Cover to generate a source file -> relevant test mapping. From there, you can see which files are affected by a merge. Then, you can compute a minimum set of relevant "slow" tests to run. This should prevent the merger from having to run all the tests, and save him some time.

    Obviously this could go wrong in a number of ways, but it might be helpful anyway.
