     [ https://bro-tracker.atlassian.net/browse/BIT-671?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel ]

Jon Siwek updated BIT-671:
       Resolution: Rejected
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.4)
           Status: Closed  (was: Open)

I think this approach may complicate the unit test framework more than it's worth -- there's already a not-negligible maintenance cost of Bro's unit testing that will continue to grow as we add tests and I think they currently do well enough at detecting potential problems.

> If we record all events during testing, say by adding {{events.bst}} to each Bro run, we can simultaneously test the core. Moreover, we instantly know whether a bug manifests at script land or at the core.
