Subject: PATCH: improve docs for apply_state and add explicit return value
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 475b
What I started to report was a "wish" to be able to query the "state" without running anything. For example, perhaps I'd like to manually review the list of failed tests, so I can pick out just one of them to run. What I ended up with this patch to improve the docs for "apply_state" to make it clearer what happens -- the previous docs made it look like it actually runs tests, which it doesn't. I also added an explicit return, which is a "Perl Best Practice". Mark

I see a small typo in my patch. "Nothing is return" should be "Nothing is returned".
Applied as r1286, thanks :)
