Actually, the important thing is to have all.html.

Outreach 5:  can anyone NOT process all.html into slides?

Here are some links:

[1] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/  (SVG TS home page)
[2] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/Overview-10.html (SVG 1.0 TS page)
[3] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/svgTest-manual.htm#HowtoDoIt
[4] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/svgTest-manual.htm#TestReviewGuidelines
[5] http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/20011026/1st-readme-20011026.html

You can actually find everything from [1].  But [2] is what I worked on and 
built (new person built the 1.1 TS, [1], and the whole philosophy, 
orginazation, and technologies is heavily revised.)

[2] has good links to the several TS harnesses for the 1.0 test 
suite.  Also has links to the Release Notes (and TS installation 
instructions) [5].  Also has links to "The Manual", which has a couple of 
interesting chapters:  The chapter at [4] is a test case review and 
evaluation procedure (or rather, a set of review criteria); chapter at [5] 
is a description of how to write a test case (I guess we had potential 
external contributors in mind here).

Not that I think that these things are necessarily "application of good 
practice".  Maybe "precursor to good practice" is more accurate!
