Minutes here: http://www.w3.org/2010/04/06-htmlt-minutes.html

#1 Check for any bugs on approved tests (currently zero)
krisk: don't think we have any, just checking
... don't have any approved tests, and no bugs there

#2 Review Current Tests Posted To List For Approval
adrianba: there was discussion on the list about whether it makes sense to review a single test
... does it make sense to review in batches or individually?

krisk: small batches are good, large batches are bad

adrianba: i can see that having a suite helps to look at the direction things are going but at the same time an individual test is either valid or not

krisk: testing one test in isolation would be odd but knowing that there are more to come it makes sense
... will continue discussion on the mailing list about approval of the current test being considered

#3 Ask group for any upcoming tests to be approved/submitted
krisk: will send mail to public-html requesting more tests be submitted

#4 Do we want to create a script to turn xhtml tests -> html tests where applicable?
krisk: in the past, tests were submitted in pure xml and then transformed
... do we want to do something similar?
... this might not work for all cases, we might need to have xhtml5 and html5 tests
... need to discuss on the mailing list

adrianba: would be good to avoid extra work if it's not necessary

sharon: maybe it can be the test author's decision

#5 Does HG have a static IP Address? Need for X-Domain testing
krisk: i'll follow-up with plh on this - think this is the case
... this will help to address phillip's feedback
... about security tests

#6 Start discussion on how the test suite would move from HG -> w3.org
adrianba: are the tests directly accessible with http from the repository?

<krisk> yes, e.g http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/html/rawfile/tip/tests/submission/Microsoft/htmldom/loader.html?anchor01.html

krisk: but we probably want a dated snapshot
... will discuss with plh how he thinks this can work
... not moving tests would be great
... don't want to have different server names that could break tests
... which might not be immediately noticed
... that's everything for now
