Dear Software Authors...

I really appreciate that you've written tests for your software; it raises the chances that you're not a screaming moron by a few points. However, please understand that you may not be the last person on earth who may wish to benefit from the test suite, and DOCUMENT HOW TO RUN THE FUCKING TEST SUITE. I'm currently into my third hour of trying to work out what precise set of dependencies and incantations is required to make your test suite run.
Bonus hate is available for that subset of these people who reject patches that don't come with suitable additions to the test suite.
