Are you speaking from your own experience of working on JDT code (as a new
contributor), or are these words you put into the mouths of others? I'd
appreciate if they speak for themselves.

I speak as the tech lead for Jeff and Roland  and discussions on a weekly basis what/how/when/why to do so we can share the burden in JDT with others. Being the one that have pushed for people to work on JDT and the one that has followed up most of the late additions to the team and specifically organizing the team work so JDT team and community can grow - yes I do speak from my own experience and would dare to even say that have a broader view of the project not worse than many committers.
I haven't worked on JDT code itself a lot (releng fixes after incomplete fixes in JDT and -Werror addition) but I would dare to say that non-trivial part of the work in the last few releases has been requested by/approved by/checked by/etc. by me personally incl. freeing time for people to work on JDT and further .

I'm willing to learn from our new contributors. It's among the committers that
we have to find a mode of operation that facilitates collaboration and avoids
stepping on each others' toes. It seems this mode has not yet been found.

I'm looking at such results [1] all the time and I see no problem. Do you care
to be more specific? - go even figure which test triggered the failing setup. You want see it in later builds cause these specific tests have been disabled and other such has been updated to JUnit4 - doing it regularly when my daily look at test results spots such thing.
