We did not wait your suggestion to implement a test suite. We are running this test suite every day. This test suite is regurlarly incremented when bug reports are submitted. Could you clarify what you mean by "regressions on precedent behaviour of the framework"? and give examples illustrating your affirmation?
You can check-out the roottest suite from if you want to run the test suite, or run simpler tests from $ROOTSYS/test.
We are welcoming your contribution to this test suite.
