I talked with Nicolas this morning, and at my urging he moved everything
from ./testing/lisp/contrib into ./testing/lisp and removed the contrib
directory.  I think moving forward we are best served by a single test
directory, especially given that we already have good methods of
conditionally loading only those tests appropriate for the users

Yes, I assume that the lower case "failed" means expected failure.

My guess is that when I removed require statements for org-html and
org-ascii from from test-org-html and test-org-exp, they removed some
functionality not loaded by default in the test scripts.  These should
probably be added into the Makefile.

Yea, I also run most tests from my normal Emacs session, which is part
of the motivation for removing these embedded require statements.
