in reply to Tests failing for third party server lapses

Can you bundle a minimal set of files just for testing? How about mirroring the files that you need on another server (say, like a Google Code project)?

Also, you can skip tests if you don't have everything that you need to test. I wouldn't refuse to write a Makefile because that stops everyone from installing the source even though the module probably still works. Print out a nice message saying they need to download some files later and still test what you can.
