As with the seven deadly spiritual sins, you can find someone wh= o will argue that each of the coding sins is the worst of the seven. We won= 't argue that any of the sins is the worst, but we do believe Bugs and Pote= ntial Bugs is the most urgent. That's because this sin represents things th= at are going wrong in your code today or that may go wrong tomorrow. An unc= onditional null pointer dereference is a prime example of a bug (hopefully = the urgency is self-evident). Potential bugs are a bit more subtle, but no = less important.
Instances of this sin are tracked with the issues mechanism. Typically bugs and potential bugs will sho= w up as Blocker or Critical issues, although that's fully configurable. Coding Standards Breaches are also tracked as i= ssues, although typically at lower severities. Instances of the other = sins can optionally also be tracked using the issues mechanism (which offers some distinct advantages).
To monitor potential bugs, add the Issues and Technical Debt widget to your project dash= board if it's not there already:
Use the differential views&n= bsp;to monitor new issues.
