To begin with, let me give the correct pointer to the actual DOM TS 
project at sourceforge: http://sourceforge.net/projects/domconftest/

[dd] Actually, given that we don't use the sourceforge project for issue 
tracking for the DOM in general, but only for the DOM TS (which is 
something I should have pointed out, sorry for forgetting), I'll try to 
relate my answer to DOM TS specific things: we've thought along the 
lines of generating a simple intermediary format for quick browsing of 
issues (we thought of posting this on the .../DOM/Test pages), like the 
one you and Kirill proposed. However, I haven't managed to find out what 
formats sourceforge as such supports. It's an action item on me, and 
unfortunately it's stil pending. (I'll try to resolve this until 
tomorrow's telcon).
