The various websites work off different copies of the database, so are
usually somewhat out of sync with each other.  It can take up to a
couple of days for a particular report to filter through to everywhere.

Or some of them might be hidden because of the options in the top right
of the screen.

An email is sent out daily to authors summarising recent test failures.

    what it is they want, nor can they evaluate it when they see it
