[webkit-dev] No coverage of pixel tests

Hi there,

Since Blink forked none of the build bots are running pixel tests.

This means that we are not catching painting regressions where the
rendertree text dump is unaffected by the regression.

Given that in the vast majority of cases a rebaseline to the pixel result
also entails a rebaseline to the rendertree result and vice versa the
additional overhead of enabling pixel tests and keeping them up to date is
not the 'current effort x 2'. In most cases the rebaselining needs to be
done anyway, the rebaseliner just needs to update the png result while
they're at it.

So are we likely to see this situation change in the near future?

If not, reviewers and patch authors take note I guess!
