Test Suites
-----------

   - Various bits of infrastructure not set up, many confused about
     where to find unreviewed tests and what to do with them.
   - Desire for zip file of tests.
   - Need to set up cron job to build all tests, not just reviewed ones.
   - Need to either organize or document svn repo, it's a mess.
   - People complaining about documentation being out-of-date (?)
     or hard-to-find.
   - Various wishlist items proposed
   - Target date for adequate coverage set to Sept 15th.
   - Discussion of Selectors test suite changes, new version published.
   - Agreement to make svn repo (rather than W3C CVS) the master
     repository, W3C to make backups daily.

Reftests
--------

   Mozilla is proposing a new format for CSS tests. It can't be used to
   test everything, but can make testing many things much simpler and
   easy to automate. The basic principle is that each test consists of
   two files, which must be rendered identically. A complex test can
   then be compared against a simpler page that has the same result.
   This is better than comparing against an image because it equalizes
   font availability, anti-aliasing, and other platform- and UA-specific
   aspects of CSS rendering.

   RESOLVED: we accept tests in ref-format as well, as long as they have the
             existing metadata style
   RATIONALE: Many tests easier to write, and especially, to run this way.


Molly's Role and the CSSWG Website
----------------------------------

   - Discussion of Bert's proposed homepage redesign based on Jason's design

     in CSS, and collecting feedback from designers.
