Hello public-audio,

On yesterdays telcon I mentioned the Shepherd system that the CSS WG is using to manage test submission and review. Its probably easier to look at it than to explain, so the main landing page is here:


and here is an example of use - I'm looking for tests on one particular specification to see which have been reviewed and which not.

I can also filter by owner, commentor, test assertion, and so on.

My understanding is that W3C intends to make this system, which was developed by Peter Linss of HP, available to other groups as well.

If that gets deployed, then it is much easier for us to use an existing and well maintained system than to develop our own ad-hoc one. On the other hand, if it is not ready for deployment yet, it is much better to start collecting tests now and to deal with importing them later, than to wait around and not make tests.
