Yes. It is up to the maintainer to update the
status/expected_results.xml file to indicate that this is a test running
correctly, so that a regression is seen red instead of yellow.
Unfortunately I don't think a lot of maintainers know that an even those
that know (as me) don't maintain this file.

I think this is a summary for some compilers, but I don't know which
ones and why not all the testers are considered.

No that I know. You can try to see if testers that did a run before your
commit are working or not.
