Very well.

Each group ultimately makes its own rules.

What survives the group is the tech reports:

http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-testcases/
http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-test/
http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl-tests/
(the SPARQL test cases aren't released as a tech
report, as far as I know)

The OWL test cases doc has a fairly explicit write-up, including
a section on modification.
http://www.w3.org/TR/owl-test/#testProcess

I'm trying to understand
the way this TF is working, but it might not be worthwhile to get
me in sync at this point. It might be easier for me to just stay
tuned until more things become clear.
