We really need people to run make check before checking stuff in.
Please folks be considerate to your fellow coders...
That might not be enough. People might be working on a older source
tree. My idea is to do a cvs merge before attempting to check in
codes. And run "make check" on that tree instead.
- a clean check-out passes
- adding a new test, that without other changes, has just that test failing
- adding the changes cause both the new test to start passing, and the
existing tests continue passing
If bringing frysk up on a new ISA, where many tests may be failing, then
this means confirming changes don't break the base isa (i386).
