Peter,

Is this something you'd be willing to do for pre-CR specs? I expect that no one really cares about reviews or the state of the test suite until the spec gets to that stage.

Yes, there are already existing builds to CSS Regions and CSS Transforms. As soon as there are enough tests they get included in the build.

Right now, someone (usually me) has to manually add the suite to the build. I have planned changes to the build system so it'll automatically build any test suite that has tests in a submitted or approved folder.

Note that it's still perfectly fine to approve tests  at any time via Shepherd and/or reviewer links. The discussion in Hamburg was to 'de-facto approve' any non-approved tests once we feel the test suite is stable enough (i.e., generally when we exit CR). Tests that get approved that way will not have reviewer links.
