I'm working on a solution to automate running test suites (including reftests) and gathering results using WebDriver. We presented this project to Saucelabs which offered to provide free, unlimited access to their infrastructure (over 150 browser/OS combinations) on the condition that we'd keep the output results publicly available. I don't have an ETA for this yet, but it's high up in my priority list. Of course resources (financial or human)  to help build this would be welcomed.

As a side note, are there plans to integrate the CSS test suites in the main web-platform-tests repo? Anything I can do to help with this transition?

Thanks,
