Does the COS naming service require that all CORBA tests pass? That would
surprise me. So, assuming that the failing tests do not affect the naming
service, it seems the best strategy is:
1 upload with CORBA known to be broken but the COS Naming Service and DSA
working. This can be achieved by either disabling the failing CORBA
tests or by allowing them to fail in a way that does not prevent the
package from building.
2 upload narval
3 if time permits, fix the CORBA tests.
If step 1 requires changing python-gnatpython, and if that change is too
difficult or time consuming for you, consider disabling the failing tests
