Re: Request for testsuite regression period

Reverting the patch is just a (*&@#$ waste of time at this point. Really, it's a waste of time/energy, much like this conversation.

This is a policy conversation which needs to be done as right now from the looks of it, the testsuite is not something which is cared much about as keeping around failures which are regressions just get annoying and cause more harm. Lets learn from this mistake, the Ada failures were not known until after I had filed the bug about the testsuite regression (PR 26344 comes before PR 26348 by about 11 hours).

In fact in that bug report you said you caused them and looked at the
wrong testsuite results, at that point you should have reverted the
patch as it was obvious you did not test the patch correctly and knew
that might be other issues.
