In companies, I mostly see two patterns with regards to red in test automation radiators:
- Fear of Red. We do whatever we can, including being afraid of change to avoid red. Red does not belong here. Red means failure. Red means I did not test before my changes can be seen by others.
- Ignorance of Red. We analyze red, and let it hang around a little too long, without sufficient care on the idea that one known red hides an unknown red.
