[New-bugs-announce] [issue12250] regrtest: make --timeout explicit

New submission from Stefan Krah <stefan-usenet at bytereef.org>:

The implicit timeout in regrtest.py makes it harder to write automated
test scripts for 3rd party modules. First, you have to remember to
set --timeout=0 for long running tests. Then, you have to remember
not to use the --timeout option when compiling --without-threads.

I'd much prefer that there's no timeout unless explicitly specified.
For the buildbots, I think this could be done in the Makefile.
