Hmm, these used to be yellow, actually. They turned white accidently,
and I should have checked for the original color before fixing it. Put
on the TODO list, thanks.

On a side note, if you provide a note that explains each such failure,
it will both make them more visible *and* actually give user a clue
how serious the problem is.

Yep, thanks.

It is. In my annoucement I totally forgot to mention that both the XSL
reports upload procedure and the report links need to be adjusted to
the new directory structure. [Sorry, Martin!]

It's worse than just a missing CSS -- if you look at the report dates,
you'll notice that these are left-overs from the old format. The new pages
are there, though -- you just have to access them directly:

Thank you for reporting these!
