For any type of test framework, if the tests aren't run regularly
and reported in an easy to understand manner,
then the tests will bitrot and people will ignore them.
I've seen this happen in multiple companies I have worked at.
Hopefully we can do better with FreeBSD, and foster a community
of people who are actively updating the tests, and taking test failures
If we don't do this, then people will just ignore the tests.
