[webkit-dev] Questions about expected test results

OK, thanks. I'll ignore the failures for now and I can also use GTK as
my reference build since it seems to pass almost all of the layout

If I actually end up working on a new port then I wouldn't mind working
on the test infrastructure if it needs help. My motto is "If it's not
tested, it doesn't exist."

The buildbot for the QtWebKit port does not currently execute layout
This is a known issue and is being worked on.  Torch Mobile plans on
hosting a 
new buildbot for the QtWebKit port that will have the layout tests
turned on.

It is known that lots of tests do not currently pass.  That is a result
some bitrot in the implementation of DRT for the Qt port, but it is
worked on.  Lots of the failures are a result of problems with DRT
rather than 
the Qt port itself.

Again, the current Qt buildbot has issues, but a plan is in place to fix
