You can largely ignore this if you never modify Chromium baselines or
TestExpectations. But if you do modify them ...
I'm working on getting our new 10.8/MountainLion bot green. It looks
like Apple changed their text rendering a bit in the latest release
and so we need lots more baselines. In addition, the Chromium project
will currently fall back on the Apple baselines in platform/mac, and
we've decided that we probably shouldn't (so that Apple folks don't
have to worry about accidentally breaking the Chromium port when they
change "their" baselines in platform/mac), so I'll be landing copies
of those baselines into platform/chromium-mac as well.
So, you'll be seeing a lot of churn under LayoutTests :( Sorry !
Please *do not* modify
without coordinating with me. Largely, you should pretend it (and the
10.8 bot) don't exist until I say otherwise.
PS. As an aside, this once again raises the question of whether
maintaining pixel tests (generally) is worth the cost to the project.
I would like to decrease our dependence on them, and am working on a
number of ideas that might help here, but don't have anything ready to
solve the problem right now. More on these efforts soon ...
