my code works :-)

I actually had a look into two of the three failing tests and wanted to fix 
them. But did not understand the foreign code base good enough to investigate 
it properly. So I don't know whether this is an expected fail (given the 
commit message which introduced the tests which are failing I doubt it) or 
not. Those two are at least failing since I started looking at build.kde.org. 
Probably nobody cares :-(

For the third test I informed the maintainer that it started to fail.
