Well right now our junit tests report 100% success rate. I verified
'all' the samples a few weeks back and fixed all the issues I
encountered. Some of the problems were corrected later by Ruwan as
well, so I think at the moment all the samples are working. I
personally don't think there's a requirement for an 'extensive' round
of testing. IMO some regressions tests should be good enough.
