Oh, I thought you were referring to my manual CC to libvirt that I have
been doing when an issue looked to be upstream related (exactly once so

Yes, I certainly wouldn't recommend sending our automated test reports
to the list.

I'm happy to add an automated CC to whatever mailbox you guys want.

There is a link in each test report e.g.
links to
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~xensrcts/logs/26970/ note that the
logs are expired after a couple of weeks (this one is still live

 contains some terminology etc which might help you make sense of it.

Currently these are only build tests, because we've not taught our test
system about virsh yet, hence the "guest-start" step is marked as "never

By contrast
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~xensrcts/logs/26947/ is a failed test
(caused by a network glitch on our end)

http://lists.xen.org/archives/html/xen-devel/2014-05/msg00528.html has
some useful background one which test flights (flight == the FOO in the
"[FOO test]" but of the email subject) include libvirt tests and what
they are testing against what (summary: libvirt flight is new libvirt
against already tested xen and xen-* flights are new xen from that
branch against already an tested libvirt).
