Who created this?
Originally authored by Dennis Doomen with Jonas Nyrup as the productive side-kick. Notable contributions were provided by Artur Krajewski, Lukas Grützmacher and David Omid.
How do I build this?
Install Visual Studio 2022 17.0+ or JetBrains Rider 2021.3 as well as the Build Tools 2022 (including the Universal Windows Platform build tools). You will also need to have .NET Framework 4.7 SDK and .NET 7.0 SDK installed. Check global.json for the current minimum required version.
What are these Approval.Tests?
This is a special set of tests that use the Verify project to verify whether you've introduced any breaking changes in the public API of the library.
If you've verified the changes and decided they are valid, you can accept them using
AcceptApiChanges.sh. Alternatively, you can use the Verify Support plug-in to compare the changes and accept them right from inside Rider. See also the Contribution Guidelines.
