I thought this would be recorded in the Wiki or Bugzilla, once we start 
using it. (At the moment, we only have CVS history and this mail

The original name for the directory was "testfiles" (plural!), but 
Shadi proposed to change this to "content".

The script is only a few lines long; that is probably why it is not in 
a separate file. Do you think this should be required?

That's because the metadata were changed (due to changes in the schema) 
but the sample file was not. It's very common that metadata are changed 
without changes in the corresponding sample file (at least, it is very 
common in BenToWeb), so I think that revision numbers between metadata 
and content files will often be out of sync.

Not necessarily, because techniques often have clearly identifiable 
"locations" (e.g. labels for input fields, alt attributes, etcetera).

The "requiredTests" element currently just records the test mode 
("testMode" element). It is still there because I thought we wanted to 
get rid if the scenarios, but not the test mode. Did I get that wrong?
