   [6]Mobile Web Test Suites - next deliverables

      [6] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-mwts/2008Sep/0000.html

   Dom: [introducing performance-based test suite - either for
   javascript or network, with a target on mobile devices]

   Kai: possibly interested, but not sure I can afford investing too
   much time in this

   Wilhelm: would be interesting to see how existing mobile browsers
   fare with existing tests
   ... based on this, we could see whether we need to define tests more
   targeted to mobile devices

   Kai: the recent announcements of improvements to javascripts
   performance are quite interesting

   Dom: interesting idea to start from existing tests

   <scribe> ACTION: Wilhelm to send a list of existing performance
   tests for analysis [recorded in

   Dom: set of guidelines on how to write good mobile-oriented test
   cases

   Wilhelm: not sure that distinction is very useful; should target to
   write test cases that work on any device

   Dom: "device independence", good point

   groups/other specs]

   Carmelo: Doug Schepers mentioned adding DOM Level 3 events to the

   see if testing is appropriate [recorded in

   Kai: geolocation is also of interest to me
   ... not sure how to test it, though
   ... it would be nice to have a validator that run a web Apps through
   various geolocation providers

   Dom: let's put it on the back burner for the time being
   ... Another idea would be to work on test cases for cookies support

   Kai: of interest to me, as well
