At work we have been expanding the testing coverage of our auth service and have discovered the perfect storm of edge cases around test caching and Go’s test building. In short, we had tests that looked like they were passing locally but would fail sporadically in CI because Go will run the tests inside of a package sequentially but build and test each package in parallel (up to the number of CPU cores).
