Hi Vaclav,
i think the testing framework should go into 7.0.0 directly. Since, as
Pietro mentioned, it will not harm GRASS users. IMHO the testing
framework is a key feature, very valuable, it works well and is
utterly useful to detect backport issues. Hence, using the testing
framework a new release policy may be to reduce test failures to zero
on Linux platforms.

Best regards
