[webkit-dev] Chromium Mountain Lion (Mac 10.8) baselines ...

Hi all,

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 ...
