I'm not sure why we need bugs for each test timeout. There is nothing possibly flaky in most of these tests - it seems to be some general issue, so we could as well end up with a bug for every test.

Bugs give us a permanent record.  We can always dup them to some root cause once we have some clue what that cause is.
Comment 3 Alexey Proskuryakov 2010-04-01 00:28:54 PDT
How would a person fixing a flaky bit of code know which of the unreproducible bugs were caused by it? Or how would we know it if it's fixed by a CFNetwork or even lower level change?

Perhaps you could consider using wiki for keeping track of infrequent failures such as this.

Chromium has a flakiness dashboard which is automatically kept up to date based on real data from the bots.  That would be a better solution than our current ad-hoc bug solution.  However this ad-hoc bug solution is better than ignoring the bots.  Note that the bots have become way greener since we've started filing failures about them in bugs.webkit.org. :)
