Comment (by hinder):

 There was a problem in my Jenkins test script.  As of a few weeks ago, it
 parses the output files and puts the error message in the XML file so you
 can see it easily on the test results page (e.g.
 However, it did not quote the error message for use as an XML attribute,
 and this was breaking the test results parser.  As a result, Jenkins had
 no knowledge of the tests, and thought that they didn't run.  I added the
 quoting, and the test system now correctly reports all the failures.
 Unfortunately there was a few hours lag between Erik's commit, my fixing
 the test system and Erik fixing the code, as this happened in the evening

 To avoid duplicated effort in future, maybe it should be standard
 procedure to notify the users list that one is looking at a particular
 test failure.

 The Jenkins emails do not go to the users list, they go to the test list.
 Recently, there have been very few test failures, so the volume has been
 low.  If it remains this way for a while, we might consider sending the
 messages to the users list instead.  I'm wary of this though, because it
 is an automated process, and the users list has a large number of members.
