You're encouraged to check the tests into the W3C mercurial repo:

  hg clone https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webapps

There is a "tests" subdir there, and I just set up a "submissions" subdir
under that.


The convention we've been following for test submissions for the HTML WG is
to have subdirs under that whose names are, e.g., DrewWilson

So you are welcome to create such a subdir there in that repo, and free to
manage files and subdirectories under that however you wish. The long-term
plan is of course to take tests in those submission subdirs and, as they
get reviewed and approved, migrate them into becoming part of a central,
approved testsuite maintained in that same repo.


If you want to do this and you have any trouble with the getting the new
directory and its contents pushed to that repo, please contact me directly
and let me know.  You can reach me on #whatwg on irc.freenode.net pretty
much any time I'm actually awake, or also feel free to e-mail me directly.
