since the network tests seem to be failing a lot, how about disabling 
the biggest offender (QSslSocket test) for now? This will be temporary 
until we have a new network test server image in place. I will look into 
the new image the next days, no idea how long this will take though...
Apparently the problem seems to be bad connectivity to the test server 
and unstable processes on the test server image rather than unstable 
tests, but apparently the QSslSocket test fails most often (according to 

There doesn't seem to be broad agreement on what to do (see 
https://codereview.qt-project.org/51687 and 
https://codereview.qt-project.org/61998), so I am raising this here. As 
said, I am fine with marking the QSslSocket test as insignificant for 
now, as contributions there are quite limited anyhow.
