Hello,

One particular thing I have been playing with in the past weeks (well, 
the idea is much older...) is the idea of cataloguing the known cases 
for the testing of our tool. I put a demo at 
http://qa-dev.w3.org/tests/ which I would like you to test.

Don't hesitate to play with the data, remove, modify entries if you 
want: I have made a backup today before making this area public.

Certainly this is still incomplete, and one type of feedback I am eager 
to get is
  - how we could add/improve test case properties to make them more 
usable
  - which interface or query method (etc) would be useful for our needs

For the moment, both the admin interfaces and the more simple listing 
interface are public. Do you think the former should only be accessibly 
to us (through simple http auth). Obviously there's a risk of getting 
"spammed" by some idiot, but the question, really, is whether we will 
be the only one to input cases or if we think it's important to leave 
the interface public. I tend to think "no", since we already have 
Bugzilla (although I admit I don't have an easy way to transfer test 
cases from one to the other).

Oh, and, yes, the back-end is in RDF/XML.
But that's just that, a back-end format so let's just get over it, 
shall we? :)

Cheers,
