So much for the finger-pointing. Just to set things straight: Uploading mock-1.3 to unstable was the right thing to do as it uncovered all the broken/misused assertions in the tests that silently passed before but never actually checked anything related to their test-case. I see no use in tests that unconditionally succeed every time they are run. Cheers, Michael
