Is this true only for Geometry (and Spirit)?

Isn't it just some script which somewhere later should display/output
this 'Skipping...' message and exit if status were not equal to 0
(probably meaning that the test wasn't built properly or something similar)?
If the above is true I'm guessing that it should be in the log for all

I'm not sure if we can do this now. AFAIK the master branch is currently
