Snapey: Hmm i see what you mean.
We had a database idea at first but then felt like we didn't want to store this information because its just requirements that are set by the state. We felt like the law does not change enough, and if it did it would not be a big deal to go into the FlowerMixTypeTest class and set the $requiredTests variable to what it would require. Then commit, push, and merge. Would you consider this bad still?
I suppose it would be about which is faster/easier for the system. Whether it is easier to store and update this information in the database, or less time to change 1 class.
