This seems quite related to our discussions on the use of reftests for
an automated SVG test suite.

Subject: [webkit-dev] Cross browser automated tests

Hi,

This is an announcement of a project that may be of interest. The idea is 
to run test cases automatically on some versions of the main browsers. Test 
results should help authors/spec authors/vendors see what feature is 
implemented where and vendors could integrate these tests in their 
regression testing framework.

For now the framework is able to run a subset of WebKit and Mozilla  
automated tests. For the WebKit tests in particular, it runs the  
LayoutTests that use the layoutTestController.dumpAsText() API and compare 
result with a testcase-exepected.txt file.

Results are visible on http://www.browsertests.org. Note that there are  
some features not implemented or limitations that result in tests that  
should pass which fail and reversely. Source code and some documentation  
is available at http://code.google.com/p/browsertests/.

One of the possible future improvements is to run Mozilla tests using  
DumpRenderTree. That means that Mozilla tests could be integrated in  
WebKit's automated testing harness.

If you have questions/suggestions/ideas they're welcome. There's also a  
discussion group on http://groups.google.com/group/browsertests.


Sylvain
