Oh right, the 24.3 and 24.4 releases came from different branches.
Hmm. 24.4 came from the current "emacs-24" branch, so I think you should
be working with that branch rather than "master", if you aren't already.
Your end point should be the revision tagged "emacs-24.4", which should
test as bad.

24.3 came from a different emacs-24 branch, onto which the current
emacs-24 branch was destructively pushed (yay). I think this means that
your start point should be the revision at which the 24.3 and 24.4
branches diverged, which I think is
052f924a01f8a65ca0bfc9e6584302613e019489 on the current "emacs-24"
branch, which should test as good.

I have no idea how you are supposed to figure that out from first
