Old School QA Slang That I Just Made Up

Snakeskin (n)
Evidence of a defect that is not the defect itself.

Have you ever seen something that you know is wrong, but you’re not sure what made it wrong so you’re a little hesitant to log it (but you log it anyway because, hey, someone else might see it, and it’s best to know something is wrong)? That’s a snakeskin.

If you’re in the southern United States, feel free to call this a cicada shell.
