Subject Re: [classlib][testing] excluding the failed tests
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2006 12:45:37 GMT
Hi Vladimir,

IMHO the tests are to verify that an update does not introduce any
regression. So there are two options: remember which exactly tests may fail
and remember that all tests must pass. I believe the latter one is a bit
easier and safer.
