Those tests are closed source so that's not possible. In fact, I
would have to undertake some non-trivial effort to get access to them
myself even!

It varies from run to run. The tests have many external dependencies
and are sometimes prey to environmental factors.

I'm going to attribute that to an environmental factor, such as a
dependent database connection not responding as expected.

The job that generates the Mojarra build that feeds into these tests
ends up running after every commit to 2.3 master. The tests themselves
run every day, but the Mojarra they pick up alternates between the
2.2.8-X and 2.3.0-X lines.
