  As I understand the expected failure is failure, for which we have
unresolved JIRA issue and no matter in which release this issue is
planned to fix. When someone fix the issue he should remove
corresponding entry in xfail.txt. In ideal case the all failures at the
test results page should be an expected. Of course if some failure
can be fixed in one day (before the next nightly test results will be
obtained) there no needs to mark this failure as expected. IMHO.
