Keith's note: According to sources at NASA MSFC the contractor performing software safety tests found massive errors in the SDF test cases (no hardware testing, just software). The quality check of the test cases was given a stand down order by George Mitchell. Mitchell is Andy Gamble's deputy on SLS flight software safety. Mitchell had already told the contractor that they were not allowed to impact the testing or ask for re-testing. Further, he said that these tests had already been accepted as successfully verifying the flight software requirements. In other words the issues raised by NASA MSFC employees about SLS flight software testing are officially moot.
