ideally, these would be collected in a meaningful way, so that one can
see „Commit 123 changed the number of failing tests from 2 to 3“ or
„Test T1234 fails since 1.1.2014“ or so. Ideally together with
performance numbers („This commit improved nofib by x%“) and nice

It must be possible to collect and present such results that without
reinventing the wheel, I just haven’t seen such a tool yet.

(And I know that „we should have X“ mails are not very useful...)
