Not very recently.

I guess I'd be open to suggestions on that point, but for the purposes
of comparison, it was expedient to simply run the tests from the
website.

For my own purposes, I sometimes run the tests locally while I'm
debugging and I just ignore the failures that I know are caused by
that.
