I agree it is very welcome to see the regression test results for builds.

I also agree with Jon that it would be very helpful to see the full 
summary.txt output files for the test runs.  Such files would allow 
developers to compare the test results of their own builds to the recent 
promoted builds.  As a point for comparison, when I was release manager 
of OpenJDK 6, I published the summary.txt files as well as the jtdiff 
output; for a few examples see:


It would would be useful to have persistent per-build pages to serve as 
an archive to test results over time.

Finally, how do the jtreg options used to generate the reported results 
compare to the jtreg options used in the "make test" target?
