Huh ? That is not true, we do work with branches. There are three branches 
that are missing from that system, "master-validated", "stable" and "stable-
validated", the later two, mostly because we don't have any stable release... 
And "master-validated" because, at this point, there isn't a single revision 
of calligra that validate. And setting up a system where checking that there 
is not an increase of test regressions is way more complicated and time 
consuming than checking that the number of test failures == 0.

So krita isn't that broken or is it ? Do we have bug numbers that we can refer 
to, to make an evaluation ?
