As you say - 'it depends' but a few comments from my experiences: If you supply exact steps and data then what is the point of UAT? You might as well get your testers to run the scripts. I'd rather give the users some training on the system and give them scenarios to follow - which will have been developed with their input. Should anyone be able to run the ...

They are expected (and I fully trust them to do it) run unit tests before commit, and fix any broken unit tests promptly, and especially before start of any integration/system tests. We have huge unit test suite and on occasion some more obscure unit tests are broken for few days, if it does ...
