On Shipping Code

In reference to Jesse Storimer's The Hungry Programmer
I think a lot about testing when writing code, but recently I have hit what I see as a major stumbling block. The core issues here is that I am not writing much code. At least, that's the goal. When I do write code, it is usually a contribution to one of the well-established products I use. The biggest frustration for me there is the lack of true distributed test harnesses. My great hope for this was http://whirr.apache.org/, but it seems to be slow to catch on, or else it is not effectively used in tests. I deeply hope that this gets remedied.
