The status of testing.drupal.org is, at the moment, this: patches are 
applied, and marked "fail" if they don't apply properly. Tests are not 
actually run at the moment. But none of that matters, because nothing is 
posted back to the issue queue anyway.

But, how many contributed modules actually have their own tests written? 
No more than 10-20, certainly, which is a very small percentage. The 
workflow here needs to be more thought out; in addition, it's not all 
that reasonable to have a server running automated tests for almost 3000 
contributed modules, not to mention different core versions, module 
dependencies, etc.
