Generally the test are split from the build when a project is failing for 
awhile because of a test failure and it has other projects that depend on 
it.  In this case, the dependant projects won't be built by Gump because of 
the failure.  By splitting, the jar files are available for these projects 
to get built by Gump.

Of course, all ASF committers have karma to change the Gump metadata, so you 
are free to change it back.
