I don't know of a single open-source project with more than one or two
developers which doesn't have a suite of regression tests.  In fact, I
know of a number of OSS projects which *will not* accept a patch
unless tests accompany it.  Once a codebase grows beyond a one-person
pet project, tests become increasingly necessary for maintainability.
