If you absolutely cannot afford regressions you should be working in a
branch.  If you want to run the latest & greatest you need to be
prepared to report bugs.  Nobody is immune to this, that is part of
running trunk.  This is why I created the cassandra-0.2 release branch
for you when I started committing: I suspected you might need a stable

We in the community cannot run tests that are not checked in.  You
have said that you test by directing some traffic to the new code, and
that's fine, but blaming us for breaking tests that we cannot run is
not reasonable.

I have to disagree that each checkin to trunk should be
production-tested.  That is not what trunk is for.  Trunk is for rapid
development.  I'm doing my best to build a test suite that can run
with ant test.  If we all add tests that catch regressions as we come
across them this will progress rapidly.  If it is just me it will
progress slower. :)
