While EWS is a nice tool that tells us if bots have been able to pass
tests, *please don’t skip the process of running tests locally* as clearly
outlined in http://www.webkit.org/coding/contributing.html.

It is *YOUR responsibility* to run tests and make sure your patch doesn’t
regress existing tests.

In particular, if you’re adding any assertions or making modifications
assertions could verify the correctness of, *be sure to run tests with
debug builds* since none of EWS bots build & run tests with assertions
