I like the phrase! guessing it means 'something' is transformed?
Does that mean the entire test suite?
Smoke test is a phrase dealing with an immediate failure of a piece of electronics causing rising smoke when it is initially powered up. Akin to "Letting the Smoke out".
In this case is should be a very quick indication of failure or catastrophic failure of the build. It doesn't exhaustively test the system, just a quick indication of go/no go.
