Speaking to interview candidates on the phone, or reviewing coding test solutions, I am struck by the disparity between practices we expect of our fellow product engineers compared to what we follow for test framework code.
I had a look over the courses and material here on MoT and there isn’t much guidance or talk on the subject.

Quote from recent call - “unit tests are for developers. It is not industry standard to test our [the test framework] code”
What do others think?
Do you unit test your core framework code? Is it version control? Do you use feature branches, code reviews, etc… to make changes?
If no to any of these, why not?
