The first one and the author of new patterns (ongoing project, not
finished yet) both confirmed 2/2. The author of ooo patterns didn't
respond yet.

Yes, I completely agree.
I need to figure out how to properly test for TeX Live. (Postponing
the task to late October unless Arthur wants to work on it earlier.)
Back in 2008 we simply "hired" Norbert to test for any problems in TL.

(I need to consult the LuaTeX part of our team. If nothing else, we
should create an automated test suite.)

I need to remove MacTeX 2009 and install MacTeX 2010. I have a minimal
TL 2010 installation, but using that one is not sufficient to test for
sufficient memory.

We do run the basic tests that usually reveal duplicated patterns and
other most obvious problems that would break the format building.
