Hi Josh,

Suggest try build blender and run some of tests (enable WITH_GTEST
option). they should all pass, just checked.

There is a project for automated testing with basic info on tests, see:

Here are 2 TODO's, which would be a good starting point since the
tests are already setup, but without such good coverage.

https://developer.blender.org/T41252 - BLI_path_util_test.cc
https://developer.blender.org/T41253 - BLI_math_geom_test.cc (polygon tests)

We also have Python tests which have the advantage that you can work
on them without building Blender.
https://developer.blender.org/T39451 - mathutils py module.

In replying to this mail I realize we don't have good docs on how to
run tests, so I added some brief info to the automated-tests project
*(Sergey - correct me if I'm wrong!)
