There is an acc test failure in the dynamic bitset library (affecting
all 64 bit platforms, AFAICT), which only doesn't show up because it's
marked as 'has been failing in the last release'.
To make matters worse, this failure wasn't even present in the last
release, so the markup is plain wrong. (It's probably from the version
before, or something like that.)
I think this highlights a problem in the way we're doing the markup for
the known failures. If one test fails and is marked up accordingly for
the release, there is no procedure that once this failure is fixed, the
markup is removed.
Nearly every platform currently tested has one ore more libraries
showing dark green boxes, meaning that there is a test which
unexpectedly passes. Before the release we should clear the markup for
all these tests, otherwise the regression reports don't accurately tell
whether there are regressions or not.
If others agree that this is useful, I will take care of the markup for
