Thanks for the help.

I did that recently.  I need to do it again?  I guess I didn't get the
memo.  Maybe we need a better memo system.

While I was asleep, the power failed and my testing halted about an
hour in.  This morning, before I read your message, I stepped into
uncharted territory:
	make check
with no UPDATE=1!  My intent was to resume the tests where they left
off (I had no idea what would happent to the half-run test)

If there is a chart, I don't know where it is.  Maybe we need a chart
of charts so we can find charts.

===> where is UPDATE=1 explained?

Then I read your message.  Now I wanted to stop the tests that so I
could genererate the testing certificates.  I did
	touch ~/libreswan/testing/pluto/stop-tests-now
following the chart


It went through all the post-test rigamarole (lots of exciting greps
and so on, scrolling off my screen).  And then just continued running
tests!  So that mechanism seems broken.
~/libreswan/testing/pluto/stop-tests-now is still there.
