Edit tools/test_mercury so that it sets the variables needed for the
branch, e.g.

   case $BRANCH in

I've already done this for 0.12.

Then just run the nightly test script (tools/test_mercury)
for that branch.  run_all_tests_from_cron will do this
automatically if you set the release_branch variable appropriately.

I think you just need to change the line 'release_branch=0.11'
in tools/run_all_tests_from_cron to 'release_branch=0.12'.
This will ensure that the tests of the release branch will
use BRANCH=0.12 instead of BRANCH=0.11.

P.S. Please don't send email to my fjh at cs.mu.oz.au address; I only read
about half of it, and usually only weeks later.
Use "fjh" ++ "007" ++ "@galois.com".
(Please don't put that email address on the web or on public mailing lists.)
