As you probably know, the HTMLWG recently moved its test suite to GitHub 
(GH). Tobie, Robin, Odin, Ms2ger and others propose WebApps do the same 
and this is a Call for Consensus to do so.

Odin defined the new testing process for GH in [Proposal] and this will 
replace most, if not all, of the testing processes already agreed 
[Testing]. (Some things like using testharness.js will remain the same.)

Assuming this CfC passes:

* [Proposal] will likely be updated as we gain experience with GH and 
may be replaced by more general information like 
<https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/blob/master/README.md>.

* The root of the repository will be the same as HTML(WG): 
<https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests> and each of WebApps' specs 
will have its own subdir. For example the Web Storage test suite would 
be <https://github.com/w3c/web-platform-tests/webstorage/>.

* WebApps' hg test repository <https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webapps/> will 
become Read-only (i.e. write access will be turned off).

* Tobie, Robin, Odin and Ms2ger will do the work of the move (Test 
Facilitators are not required to do the work).

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please reply to 
this e-mail by March 22 at the latest. Positive response is preferred 
and encouraged, and silence will be considered as agreement with the 
proposal.

-Thanks, AB
