The purpose of the tests is to verify that fixes work.
So we don't integrate tests in advance of the fix since
they would fail. Instead they live in the bug report.

The announcement for the new bugzilla is that for now its
intended to be the new way to submit patches. [For those who
missed it that means you no longer send a PATCH email to the dev list]

See http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/announce/2009-February/000069.html
"Just a reminder:  at this point, this instance is only for tracking
contributions from those developers without push permissions.  It will
soon expand to track most if not all of the OpenJDK bugs.  General bugs
should continue to be filed through:


ie my reading is that if its just a bug report that's being submitted,
it should not go there - yet!

For the cases where where you have a proposed fix, then use bugzilla, for
the ones you don't submitting each of those tests as a bug report into bugs.sun.com
is the right thing to do at the moment.
