[infinispan-dev] Policy: PR with failing test as a reproducer

Hello all,
I'd like to know what is our policy in a following matter:

I've wrote a new test which is failing. (local branch)

1) Do we want to integrate also failing test into our test-suite? To see the test failing regularly until the issue is fixed? I suppose no.
2) The other and clearly better "solution" is to push failing test into my own remote branch, create JIRA, let others to try out the issue from my remote branch and wait for fix, then, integrate (already passing) test into upstream.

Is here any possible place for 1) as well? Or we strictly follow 2)?
The only reason which I can see for a policy 1) is that the test would by failing regularly and wouldn't be easily overlooked. 

Thank you for your thoughts!
