It wasn't really that any tests were disabled... they all continued to
run.  In this case it was a broken make rule that caused the download
of the images, ahead of time, to not be performed.

But your question is still valid and something that could happen.  The
best answer I have is that all job results could and should also be
persisted in a structured way that is succeptible to being queried.
Then on top of that, you can build queries to show stability metrics,
regressions, etc.

To that regards, I can speak about three possibilities:

1) Avocado has support for Fedora's resultsdb[1][2]

2) Because the Acceptance tests are already communicating the test
results to GitLab (via junit), using the GitLab API that lets you
query the detailed test results

3) In addition to that, Marcelo (cc'd here) has written an Avocado plugin
that will export test resutls suitable to be used on a datawarehouse
tool developed by the Continuous Kernel Integration project[3]. This
is not generally available at the moment, but should be available
