We are not at Adobe, other committers should be willing to help out on bug fixing and testing
in a collaborative way. We want to encourage people to put forward or commit fixes, not scare
them away with if all tests don't pass you have to revert. I don't want to add the extra burden
on people of having to run ALL of the mustella tests before submitting a fix, let the CI system
do that for them.

>  If so, Justin, can you revert some of your recent checkins in those areas?
Sorry but I'm not going to revert a checkin that actually fixes a bug and when is it most
likely that the test is now not working. If the fix had introduced an obvious error then yes
reverting or changing the fix would be the way to go. We have a trunk and a develop branch,
the whole point of the develop branch is for it to be a work in progress.

As I said before the DG test is failing due to a correct out of range RTE, the test needs
changing, has anyone actually looked at the test?

I've never been able to get either to work on OSX/my environment.
