[squeak-dev] Failing tests in trunk, gearing up for 4.4 release

I had originally emailed Frank saying that I could help out with running
the tests on my Mac laptop as well as the Windows desktop I have access
to. Seeing as how people were already making a great start on testing for
windows I decided to focus on Mac.
My initial plan of attack was to do what Herbert suggested above, and
simply grab the image, manually update it and run the tests. Then I
realized that I might be able to adapt the squeak-ci infrastructure to run
on Mac, what with it's Unix userland. So I quickly hacked up something and
sent a pull request to Frank. In the meantime I have a directory full of
XML results from the tests running and a SqueakDebug.log resulting from a
socket exception in the r2585 Cog vm, from Eliot's site.
So I guess my question is: What would be most helpful? Should I just run
the tests manually and send the results to the squeak-dev mailing list?
Does someone want or know where I should upload the directory of result
files I get from running the CI process? Can someone point out where I
have gone horribly wrong in the CI process by taking a look at my pull
request on github?
Anyway, I am eager to help and get builds going on both Windows and Mac,
but I am unsure of how best to forward my results to the list. Any
preferences or guidance would be greatly accepted.
Thanks for your time,
