We're OK with postponing the EventException changes to the test harness (testharness.js) and the RfR of the 2 test cases* related to EventException. That said, we are still requesting review (with the same deadline, November 14) of the remaining test cases that aren't in contention. I'll start a new RfR for the reduced set of 19 test cases if no one makes objections by Oct 31.

Here are the 2 EventException tests that I am going to withdraw from the RfR:
  http://w3c-test.org/webapps/DOMEvents/tests/submissions/Microsoft/converted/dispatchEvent.DISPATCH_REQUEST_ERR.html   
  http://w3c-test.org/webapps/DOMEvents/tests/submissions/Microsoft/converted/dispatchEvent.UNSPECIFIED_EVENT_TYPE_ERR.html 

* Correction to Jacob's mail: we only have 2 EventException tests, not 4 tests; the other 2 are DOMException tests, which are not in contention.

Thanks,
Alex

Hi Jacob - that seems reasonable to me.

Please make your proposal as a response to this thread and if no one makes and objections by Oct 31, Alex can start a new RfR for the reduced set of test cases:

    
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapps-testsuite/2011Oct/0011.html

(I think just public-webapps-testsuite is sufficient [i.e. no need to cross-post to other lists]).
