Well. In truth I inherited the tests from someone else who wrote the bulk of them - I can't take the credit for the work that was done before me by others - https://www.ohloh.net/p/wordpress-unit-tests/contributors
In general for every test that currently fails we need to look through and try and understand if
a) The test is wrong or out-of-date
b) The code has been changed and a bug has been introduced
If its (b) it would be really good if someone could raise a trac ticket which hilights the bug and even better if you can track it back to which version introduced it.
At the moment because so much fails I tend to focus on running tests which relate to something I am changing or fixing up code/tests for individual test classes.
