HTML has moved though to be clear it has not provide a lot of new 'test submitters' which was the primary goal.  The migration is not completed yet and we still have more infrastructure work to get done to get the HTML Test suite back to where it was 'pre-move'.

Issues that still exists 
* We don't have a mechanism in place yet to sync and publish content from github -> www.w3c-test.org
* It's not clear how exactly this will work when you have a 'fork'
* php file submission/enabling needs to be completed

One issue did come up which is something we have not had to deal with CVS/Hg on w3c sites is getting access blocked.

During WebApps' TPAC 2012 meeting, the group did not discuss moving its test repo to Github -  that move was discussed in one of Wednesday's TP meeting breakout sessions.

If you want to pursue this move, to facilitate WG-wide feedback, please send a proposal to public-webapps. Also, in the proposal, please be clear about who you expect to do the work.

-Thanks, AB
