What if I posted changes on your works on Thursday evening for you,
while I know you guys have off days on Friday and Saturday? I know
you understood that representation as a joke (and that certainly is),
but the entire talk is not a joke.

Note that your evening would be still Monday afternoon for Boston
people (with somewhat insane timezone).

If you didn't need any comments, then you could just commit things.
But since you didn't do that, then what you asked is all readers'
comments. I'm just a reader here, without mentioning any kind of
"permission" and I think your way of answering is weird. No?

You should notice there are many possible interpretations
than you have in mind. People cannot identify whether "nunit
support" means:

	- if it is integrated into "make run-test" in the
	  containing directory (i.e. in mcs/class/System.XML).
	- if it is to generate a TestFixture class which contains
	  Test case methods.
	- if it reports "failure" on "you should remove fixed bugs
	  from list" cases (I mentioned above), since when it
	  is standalone tests it dictates us to do that.

Not all of readers would read the entire patch. They will first
check ChangeLog (and/or the post itself) and see if it is
significant for themselves or not. If that is not understandable,
then they will ask what it means. That's what I did.

See how Rafi answered to the question, which clarifies things.
