I believe Florian was referring to the build of Prince, not the build of the test suite.

His point was that we accept results from any CSS implementation that’s available to the public so that the results can be reproduced.

Note that the test harness associates each entered result with the version of the individual test. So while the test suite is rebuilt each night, individual tests don’t tend to change that often. Any result entered will remain as long as the test doesn’t change.
