[testing] Proposal: close public-webapps-testsuite

Hi All,

WebApps created the [public-webapps-testsuite] (p-w-ts) list when the 
group's testing effort was centralized in hg/webapps/. Since then, the 
group adopted Github and [w-p-t] for its testing and all relevant 
discussions about testing infrastructure are conducted on 
[public-test-infra] (p-t-i) and in [#testing].

Although p-w-ts used to have a low to moderate level of e-mail, the list 
has effectively become obsoleted by the GH workflow and notifications 
about important changes in the infrastructure that are relevant to 
WebApps are not sent to p-w-ts. Consequently, I propose:

1. public-webapps-testsuite be closed (the archive will of course remain)

2. All e-mail sent to p-w-ts will automatically be forwarded to 
public-webapps. Another option is to automatically reply to the sender 
and tell them: p-w-ts is closed and to re-send their e-mail to 
public-webapps.

3. In the event there is a need to discuss one of WebApps' test suites, 
use the public-webapps list.

Any comments or objections to the above?

I support #1 and am indifferent about the options in #2 although W3C's 
SysTeam recommends the later option which seems fine by me.

BTW, of the ~50 people subscribed to p-w-ts, almost half of them are 
also subscribed to p-t-i. Regardless of whether or not this proposal 
passes, if you want to follow W3C's testing effort I strongly recommend 
you subscribe to p-t-i.

-Thanks, AB
