The cover page is generated by the test suite build process. Currently that requires a manual setup on the server, but I'm currently working on making it fully automatic. So soon test suites will just start appearing as soon as there are tests linked to that spec in the repo.

I can add a link to the harness in the cover page. The spec should also have the annotations script which will add links to the harness directly in the spec.
