Hey everyone,

I think its high time for a reminder about the NUnit testing policy.

        At all times, the NUnit tests in the following libraries will
        pass on svn head:
              * corlib
              * Commons.Xml.Relaxng
              * Cscompmgd
              * Microsoft.JScript
              * Mono.Posix
              * Mono.Security
              * System.Configuration.Install
              * System.Runtime.Remoting
              * System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Soap
              * System.Web
              * System.Web.Services
        (this is from centum_tests in mcs/Makefile).

On SVN, we've had quite a few regressions in the nunit tests recently,
especially in the corlib area. Most of these seem to not be actual code
regressions (mis-modifications of the test suite mostly). However, false
alarms cause just as much pain.

It is extremely important that *before* checking in a patch to svn in
one of these modules -- especially corlib -- you run the test suite on
your machine.
