If the currently published IR doesn't match actual results from the  
public beta then I suggest you publish an updated IR asap (replace the  
one on w3.org and send a note to www-style and this list when it's  

You can publish a new IR against the most recent version of the test  
suite but it can only be based on publicly available builds.

I'll be adding the new version of the test suite to the harness today  
or tomorrow. As the harness stores results logged against a particular  
version of the tests, I'll be copying over all existing results for  
tests that didn't change. So a new IR really only needs to cover  
modified tests.
