Did you discover what work needs to be done to get Shepherd working with 
our repository?  I can spend some time this coming week to get that up 
and running if I know what needs to be done.

That sounds fair enough.  I wonder which repository these tests should 
live in?  If not the svg2-tests repo, then perhaps it is not as 
important for us to have that up and running for the event.  (I don't 
know if the FXTF has a dedicated test suite repo.)

Great idea!

I guess the problem is that we have very few tests currently in the 
svg2-tests repository to copy from, and that that is because we don't 
have Shepherd running yet. :)
