If we know that a test is improper then we just delete it. We did
some of that. If we know how to fix it then we fix it. We did a
little of that. Sometimes it is not clear whether a test is correct.
Sometimes we know there is a bug but we don't know how to fix it. In
both of those cases, we moved the tests to Mantis.
Moving a test out of the image does not mean it has gone forever. A
test that fails is a bug, either a test that shows a bug in the code
or a buggy test. Bug reports are supposed to be in Mantis. The tests
in the image should all work so we can tell that if we run them after
we make a change and some of them fail then we made a mistake.
