I'll leave that to Odin since he's been driving this, but I'll be happy 
to comment and help.

We shouldn't mix using w3c-test.org and using the current framework. The 
former we definitely keep on using — we're right now working on the sync 
from our TS to that server.

The framework I think was a proof of concept but has endemic problems 
(one of which being that it is painful and costly to maintain). I know 
we can do much better. I'll bang my head with that of a number of other 
people and I'm sure we'll come up with something. This, however, is 
orthogonal to the GitHub reorg. You can keep using the existing 
framework after the GitHub move, and it would still have the same 
problems if we don't move.
