> I will just throw out another idea that I had about handling flaky tests.
> I think it would be nice to mark a test as "flaky" and than treat it
> differently if it fails.
> For example, once a test is marked as flaky you could choose to ignore
> flaky test failures and maybe report them

> failure if run on a "strict mode".

Also see this issue which proposes a separate marker for flaky tests:
