I keep it like Olaf in this with my Mails on this list: If you spot anything 
you want to reuse, just treat it as if the copyrigth was assigned to the FSF

Sadly that doesn't work... 
I reread what I write, but I often only spot my errors when I push the code. 

The only way I know for getting me to find more errors is to convert the 
format, so the text looks different. I assume that my brain then partly forgets 
that I wrote it and stops claiming that it must be correct ;)

I think what we need for that is a way to tag as "tested" (for example by 
using a "tested" branch). 

That way, people who want to try stuff in our repos know what works for us, and 
they also see directly if something is mostly untested, because that won't 
have "tested" tags/a "tested" branch (tested is much alike to stable here).

Sounds good. 

Best wishes,
