These messages are not from GitHub, they are from Shepherd (SyncBot on GitHub). It runs the same validation checks against Pull Requests that it does on tests that are checked in to the repo.

Note that Shepherd does not perform any kind of HTML validation (like the W3C HTML validator does), since tests may require "bad" html. Neither does it look for minor issues like BOMs, tabs vs spaces, or line endings. Those are "nice to haves", but we wouldn't reject tests over them (and some tests require BOMs).

Shepherd does ensure that XHTML parses properly (as XML), and it primarily checks for the proper metadata in the test files.

Yes, the script path must be "/resources/testharness.js". If you are testing on a local web server you can create an alias to serve the script at the proper url, otherwise if you're using the files directly, you can create a file system link in your root directory, ie: "ln -s /path/to/resources/repository /resources"
