In theory, the first item in a few weeks, the second item at the end of 
the year. However, the more issues we receive, the longer the first item 
takes to finish, so that's only an estimate. And the test suite won't be 
finished at the end of the year; a test suite for a spec on the scale of 
CSS2.1 will probably never be truly finished.

There is an early draft of the test suite here:

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
