Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (ABDERA-39) Selectively disable unit tests that depend on external services

Agreed on both counts.  I generated the patch yesterday morning when my
workstation couldn't get any response back from verisignlabs.  My
immediate options were no build at all, a completely untested one, or a
partially tested one.  

Further commentary: the patch doesn't disable the tests full stop -- it
adds a  profile which has to be specifically enabled on the command line
(e.g. mvn -P no-online-tests clean install); without the special
incantation, all tests will still be run.  An alternate approach is to
add the profile to one's local settings.xml.
