I'm sorry, but I don't understand.

"Normally we would now run the test suite, but at this early stage the 
test suite framework (Tcl, Expect and DejaGNU) is not yet in place. And 
there would be little point in running the tests anyhow, since the 
programs from this first pass will soon be replaced by those from the 
second. "

Why would this need to be changed?  Is that statement wrong?
