Ah, that makes sense, testing the sum is a good idea. And I want to
know that type of result, thanks. I get that type of report from other
companies as well, and it's nice to see the testing spread to more,
thanks.

Sure, that's valid, just want to know what you are reporting :)

I would, thanks. Look at how the Linaro results are displayed as an
example (maybe a bad one, it's a messy report) about what actually runs
and what is testing, to make it a bit more obvious as to what is going
on for anyone who might be curious.

thanks again for doing this, much appreciated.
