It seems dbaron doesn't consider himself on the ball on this issue.

I'd like to get these tests checked in this week, so we can get an
accurate build of the test coverage report for TPAC. There's three
ways this could happen:

   1. I give you access to check in the tests yourself.
   2. You send me a tarball of the tests and associated files.
   3. I scrape them off your website.

All three methods work for me, although if any server-side configuration
is required #1 or #2 is definitely the best way to go.

Please let me know what you prefer.

Thanks~
