The "svn" step of the test builders takes about 4.5 minutes, compared to about 15 minutes to run the tests. I don't know if having to update two different source trees is the main problem here.

I guess you're implying that having one more-up-to-date bot and one even-farther-behind bot would be better than the current situation. Unfortunately, right now the Debug tests are far more stable than the Release ones, so your proposed change would presumably make the stable, Debug tests be even farther behind than they are today.

That probably is the best way to do it, if we decide this is a good change to make.
