comment Quicker way to assert that an element does not exist
That sounds suspicious. On modern hardware, I would expect "slow" exception handling to mean additional microseconds, or perhaps even additional milliseconds, but certainly not 54 seconds.

comment Is a web application bug found on the Android emulator more likely than not to be a legitimate bug?
I am glad my question was interesting. (When I pitch this idea to the developer I mentioned, I expect him to ask me the same thing.) In this case, the opinion of someone with little experience is not as compelling as that of someone with lots of experience. If you had said you had only used the emulator for one day on one project, I would have discounted your answer.

comment Unskipping skipped tests once bugs are fixed?
"run this test, but we're expecting it to fail, so do something special when it does": To be more specific, I think the decorator should run the test but report a problem if it does not fail. If it does not fail, either the bug has been fixed or your test has a bug; either way, you will want to repair your test.

Thank you. How much Android testing have you done?

comment What is Pre-beta release?
If someone uses a term you are unfamiliar with, the best policy is to ask them what they mean. And if multiple parties use the term, there is no guarantee that they all mean the same thing. If you are concerned about sounding naive, you can say, "I've never heard that term before. It sounds like it means X -- is that what it means to you too?"

You say "I tried pointing out why it's not a realistic one to measure progress...". What response did you get?
