I do run tests, but my environment get messy sometimes, too.
I keep an eye on Jenkins, but I am not always in a position to fix things
and I'm sorry about that.

Could you please explain what alternative approach does the "root" property
_and_ add assumptions checks, since it causes nasty NPEs when not set?
I'd rather be adding assumptions checks for "ant.home" property.
By the looks of it, JUnit 5 runner tests need an assumption check, too.
