At the risk of seeming to be glib, I'd have to say: Feature, not bug. Smolder is a test aggregator and reporter and assumes that you have successfully built that which you are using to test.

I suspect that the build failure quoted above is the same you have reported in TT #979. Given that these days failure of Parrot to build are much less frequent than test failures, reporting in Trac tickets as you have done is the way to go.

Does that seem reasonable?

(Unless someone has a proposal to change our current system, I think this ticket is closable.)

Thank you very much.

There was no objection raised to closing the ticket, so I will take it and do so.
