That message just means there isn't any waiver file published for those 
tests.  That all happens after the actual testing and is generated by 
tjreport. As such, it's completely independent of the actual test 
failures.  There was at least one failure that was showing up somewhat 
frequently in the foomatic rip test:


But it looks like it was test 13 (which I believe had some work on it 
after the pilot).

You can sometimes get more failure detail with -v:

/opt/lsb-tet3-lite/bin/tjreport -n -v /opt/lsb/test/printing/./results/0002e/journal

(-n suppresses going out and looking for the waiver file)
