Not necessarily. I suspect it still would have been listed, you would have
objected, and someone may have looked at the tests to point out it was only
unit tests with no integration tests against a live service like e.g. the
pythontest.net-related tests and so it was already neglected.
It also doesn't help that no one is listed in the experts index for the
