Its quite easy for everyone who is able to checkout and build AOO to run 
them [1]. The "official" Apache don't run them yet. My local buildbot 
does daily BVT (Build Verification Tests) and FVT (Functional 
Verification Tests) tests.

The full test suite of BVT (Build), FVT (Functional), SVT (System), and 
PVT (Performance) tests takes about 24h on dedicated powerful hardware. 
And there are still too many false positives resulting from timeouts, 
connection problems, wrong slot IDs, etc.

Agreed. The framework is a great asset that should be leveraged. If we 
can eliminate the still too frequent false positives then we could send 
automatic reports to the mailing list.
