Clearly, as the working group adopts test cases, we will need some kind of process for how individual tests are reviewed and approved by the group. I will work with Mike to get the tests uploaded and we will make updates according to the feedback we get. At a certain point, though, we will need to decide that certain tests are "done" and should not be modified.
