Re: cvs head has lots of test failures

I checked out each day from August 5th.

The test-suite works on 08/05, 08/06, 08/07 with cvs co corresponding to those dates.

It fails on 08/08 (ie cvs co -D "2 days ago"). So it looks like something changed on that date that caused some issues. So people who checked in on that day, should double check their patches and look for gotchas

We really need people to run make check before checking stuff in.
Please folks be considerate to your fellow coders...

Unfortunately make check is not always very reliable. We are working on some very different platforms. It can be that you are not seeing failures on your platform, but others do see them on theirs. And it seems make check is often randomly broken :{ Making it hard to see if some failure was already there or that it was introduced by your new code. I would love to have a zero make check fails checkin policy.

Although the fact that some tests take more than half an hour to run
make that a little hard in practise.

Having an autobuilder on some canonical platform with public test
results would make comparing results between days/checkins easier at
