LibGit2Sharp strives to have a comprehensive and robust unit test suite to ensure the quality of the software and to assist new contributors and users, who can use the tests as examples to jump start development. There are over one thousand unit tests for LibGit2Sharp, and this number will only grow as functionality is added.
