[erlang-bugs] Common Test 1.6.1 - Surefire

Good day


I must have changed it when debugging "skipped" tests problem, I was experiencing in bamboo.

Due to observing that the "on_tc_skip" uses " _Tc " ( note small 'c' ), noting that Tc is an atom and TC
is a record. Hence when debugging "on_tc_fail" I unwittingly removed the underscore for a debug, thinking that it would not conflict. ( the curse of long working hours :) )


A note on skipped test cases in bamboo :

The JUnit parser in bamboo does not acknowledge "skipped" test cases, which unfortunately cause a "false positive" sistuation. 
Changing the "skipped" to "failed", the bamboo junit parser shows the failed test cases. I personally prefer this when for project management reasons.

I hope is helps anyone integrating into bamboo.
