Hi Tobie,
A few questions about moving tests to Github...

I strongly support moving tests to Github, but would insist that test suites be mirrored at the W3C for longevity/authority (I love Github, but have also seen many of these kinds of awesome companies come and go over the years).  

Also, how do we co-ordinate this? Is the W3C Github account or project already set up? Or do individuals just control their own repos and just link to them from the specs (obviously, I don't see that working well personally to help build community… unless someone already popular does it)?  

Another question: would the existing Web Apps test suite creation process [1] work for a general community in the wild, or is it too process heavy? How do you invasion test contributions will work (i.e., shared project/contributors, integration control into main test branch, code/test quality control/guidelines, etc.)?  

Really interested to hear how all this could work!
