Okay, thanks.  I guess the "-ref" suffix is allowed before the
extension, so my current naming convention for refs is fine, right?
Would it be better if I changed it so the files were in a reference/

Also, with respect to test numbering: should I just rename
abspos-1a.html to abspos-001.html, abspos-1b.html to abspos-002.html,
etc.?  This looks like it matches the convention for the CSS 2.1 test
suite.  The advantage of the current naming scheme (which I copied
from Mozilla) is that it allows tests to be grouped.  E.g.,
background-1*.html all have background-1-ref.html as their ref file,
and background-2*.html all have background-2-ref.html as their ref
file.  If they were numbered consecutively, then it would be less
obvious which tests corresponded to which refs.

If I stick with the number-letter naming convention from Mozilla, I
can pad to three digits if you prefer, but it's probably never going
to be needed -- with this convention, two digits would mean ten
different *ref* files for a single part of the spec.  At least for
transforms, it's unlikely that this would ever be needed, because it's
pretty easy to reuse the same ref file for lots of tests.  (In fact,
green-rect.html is the ref file for a large fraction of my 3D
transform tests, and could be used for a majority if I wanted to tweak
them.)  The letter part of the name can be extended indefinitely
without padding, because after z would come aa, and "foo-1aa.html"
sorts after "foo-1z.html" naturally because . in ASCII comes before
all letters.

But this is pretty arbitrary and I'm happy to do whichever way makes
sense to everyone else.

What e-mail address is it comparing against?  Would it be possible
instead to change whatever knows about ayg+csswg@aryeh.name to use
ayg@aryeh.name?  These days I prefer to use just ayg@aryeh.name for
any human-visible e-mail address, and use plus-addressing only for
automated mail reception.

Thanks!  Are files in support/ not allowed to have -ref in their name
either, or will shepherd figure out that they're support files based
on the directory?  When I first added those support files they were
only used by one test each, but at this point it might make more sense
to rename them to something generic anyway.

Okay.  No specific section was relevant to those tests, so I just
linked them to #transform-property:


Is there a way to see a list of tests that shepherd has rejected due
to formatting errors or such?  http://test.csswg.org/shepherd/ seems
not to list such tests anywhere.
