--- Comment #1 from Bryce Harrington <b.harrington at samsung.com> ---
It's well known that many tests are no longer passing.  What we're more
interested in are a) sudden deltas in num fails, or b) analysis to isolate
certain failures to specific functional changes in the code.

Many test failures are false positives, because the test had been depending on
incorrect behavior (either in cairo or the larger ecosystem), so as things get
fixed the tests detect the change as a failure erroneously.  This unfortunately
puts a ton of noise into the test suite, so raw test logs are not terribly
useful for tracking here.

Of course, patches to help reduce test failures for any of the above reasons
would be more than welcome!
