Yeah, Jon and I have been discussing about whether to expose this as
failure or not. Basically what I'm trying to do here is to provide
automated test results. The way that I'm currently doing this is to run
these patches through our internal test farm and if the tests succeed,
send out the results and reply with a Tested-by: to all patches so that
patchwork has a record of it.

So just the fact that the test results were sent means the tests passed.
I do see now that that's not at all clear, so I'm going to have to tweak
the summary a bit to clarify that.

I've also added something like this to the bottom of the summary:

Warnings:
- 1 failure for board tegra186-p2771-0000 but tests passed

This is supposed to indicate that the one failure that you're seeing in
the test results is an intermittent failure. Looking at the logs I see
that at some point there was an intermittent boot failure for Jetson TX2
but then the test farm rebooted the system and then it succeeded and ran
the tests successfully.

So I guess in general this means that if you get that test summary and a
list of Tested-by: replies to the patches, all is well. Unfortunately I
don't really have a useful way of reporting failure, so I'm not sending
out a summary in that case. That means you currently can't distinguish
between whether the series hasn't been tested at all or whether it
failed. Although, I have also started to use patchwork checks to track
this in patchwork, so you could look at the patches in patchwork and see
if they have been tested, and that does record success or failure.

Yeah, I'm working on that. It's the only reason I'm not sending out
failure reports because it would just say that things failed without
giving you any indication about why.

Currently the plan is to upload more detailed test results to a public
location (perhaps github, like nvtb used to) and provide a link to them
in patchwork and the test summary.

Do you think that would be helpful? Anything else you think would be
useful to have in these reports? Or anything about the above that you
think is impractical for you as a contributor?
