I'm delving into the world of SimpleTest in Drupal. I started off by doing a fresh installation of Drupal 7 and running all the tests. I noticed there are a few tests that are failing, along with 1 test throwing an exception. Should a completely fresh install of Drupal 7 (or Drupal in general) have failing tests? I understand that in HEAD not all tests are going to pass. But, does Drupal get released along with a test suite that includes still failing tests?
I've tried searching the Drupal Core issue queue for some of the failing tests but haven't really found anything.
Based on comments so far, it seems that it is not intentional that a release of Drupal would include failing tests, even if for known issues that haven't been resolved as part of that release. Given that assumption, what is the best thing to do from there?
