Artificial TCP Delays - Currently Uwog has random delays of up to 5 seconds built in. This could be added as a menu option in debug builds to set delay behavior, simulating low-quality high-latency links which reveal more bugs.
AbiWord Fuzzer/Gremlin - This could be an entirely separate plugin (or just an addition to Debug AbiCollab
) to make random changes to a document. Enabling collaboration on both ends then turning on gremlins and logging behavior could find problems. Ideally, if crash bugs are suspected, we could make the gremlins really nasty and run Abi inside of GDB to get backtraces, perhaps automatically.
TODO: Investigate utility of a gremlin plugin for AbiWord and Valgrind: would this provide useful information?
