The test harness is primarily in CVS:

pbjam:~/w3ccvs/WWW/2001/sw/grddl-wg connolly$ cat CVS/Root
connolly@cvs.w3.org:/w3ccvs
pbjam:~/w3ccvs/WWW/2001/sw/grddl-wg connolly$ cat CVS/Repository
/w3ccvs/WWW/2001/sw/grddl-wg


Though just yesterday I made an hg repository copy at 
http://homer.w3.org:8123/ ;
it's not automatically sync'd when commits are made to the CVS 
repository.

It's just the GRDDL.py sample implementation that is primarily in hg.

yes. The repo that's not found is the local one, not the remote one.
I should perhaps report this as an hg issue.

try:
  hg clone http://homer.w3.org:8000/grddl-hg my-grddl-hg

which is step 2 in the hg QuickStart
   http://www.selenic.com/mercurial/wiki/index.cgi/QuickStart

I'm not sure it's really worth writing a HOWTO for the 4 or 5
test suite contributors, but I suppose it can't hurt.

Maybe put it near "How to run the tests" in
   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/grddl-wg/td/testlist1
