  • Yesterday I was finally able to make some progress.

    In my project, one of the packages loads a set of extensions coming from an inner namespace. If I abstract it enough (to make it load the extensions of a given namespace - using an attribute), I can subclass the package, create a package that it will load as an extension, I can then make sure it loads it correctly.

    However, I can only test it by the subclassing an event, since it loads a Role. So, I have to abstract it some more.

    I don't know if it's a "god damn it, why do I have to write SO much code just to see if it reached an event and loaded some role" or "it's good 'cuz it's forcing me to write some SERIOUSLY abstract code because that's the only way I'll be able to test anything"...
