I recently had to fix at least two problems that could've been prevented by running tests and checks that are about to be turned off by default ( and ).
I'd like to point out that this has happened while checks were theoretically enabled, and both problems could've been prevented. This doesn't seem to be a merge problem, or something that showed up only after the merge. I might be misunderstanding motivation for this, but my impression was that we, as a community, are striving to be able to have working version on every commit merged to master, and possibly even block merging in case tests don't pass. It'd be great to hear more about why this could be helpful.
