I support this move. It will make it easier for us to contribute to the test suites.
But we don't have anyone to do the move of the existing tests, specifically. Not sure if that's what you meant by "who you expect to do the work".

Thanks,
Bryan Sullivan

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
